West Edwards Design Improvements

The focus of the US 6 West Edwards Improvements Design and the ECO Transit Connectivity Plan (US 6) Project is improving multimodal access and connectivity in West Edwards along about one mile of US 6 between the Eagle River Village and Lake Creek Village Communities and the Vail Christian High School. The project will identify issues, needs and opportunities to improve mobility for all user types including pedestrians, bicyclists, transit riders, and drivers. Based on input from the public and key community stakeholders, conceptual multimodal design improvements will be crafted that focus on safe and efficient mobility for all modes of travel (see project area map for additional project area details).

The US 6 Project will review existing traffic operations at three intersections along US 6; Hillcrest Drive, Fox Hollow, and Arrow Grass as well as along US 6 from Eagle River Village to Vail Christian High School. Issues and opportunities will be identified to generate alternative design concepts that result in safety and operational improvements for all users. The project team will also review transit operations and identify bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure gaps and needs to understand how multimodal improvements can improve connectivity along Lake Creek Village Boulevard, Hillcrest Drive, and US 6 within the project area. 

Funding has been allocated to further develop the design for the Hillcrest Drive improvements, including right-of-way acquisition and construction cost estimation. The Project will follow the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) process for data collection, evaluating the alternatives, and other project elements in coordination with CDOT. Other improvement alternatives will remain conceptual until funding is identified for additional design and construction.
