Xcel gas line work under Highway 6 from Edwards to Minturn

Contact: Ellie Caryl, Trails Program Manager at 970-328-3523

Xcel Energy will replace a substandard size pipeline under Highway 6 this year starting in May and working through September. The project will impact travel by vehicles, pedestrians and bicyclists on Highway 6. The work boundaries are Miller Ranch Road in Edwards and Minturn Road across from the Forest Service office. The current plan is to work primarily in the westbound lane and mark detours, lane and shoulder closures as needed. Bicyclists may be asked to move from the roadway to the Eagle Valley Trail, if a section is available nearby. Avon, Eagle County and CDOT are all in the review and permit process at time of this newsletter publication. Concurrent work zones may be in place at different locations along the 7 mile project route. Xcel will be required to provide website and newsletter updates through the life of the project.
