West Vail Pass Recreation Path

Client:Colorado Department of Transportation

This project is located on the West Vail Pass Recreation Path adjacent to Interstate 70 in Eagle County. It begins north of Interstate 70 (MP 181.9) and extends approximately 8.2 miles to the top of Vail Pass and 1-2 miles into Summit County (MP 190.1). This eight mile section of path is located at elevations ranging from 8,000′-11,000’ and experiences extreme weather conditions that can cause damage to the asphalt at a higher than average rate. The resurfacing portion of the project included approximately 8 miles of a 1-1/2” overlay of the existing path using warm mix asphalt. The work also included resurfacing on Big Horn Road inside the Town of Vail, drainage improvements, striping, signage and traffic control. Columbine Hills Concrete, Inc. was given 25 days to complete the job and the path had to be open to the public Friday-Sunday.

Ten Mile Canyon Recreational Path

Client:Summit County Government

This project is located at the intersection on I-70 and Hwy 91 at Copper Mountain. The project was built to connect the existing bike path that goes from Frisco, CO to the bike path that goes over Vail Pass, as well as the start of a master plan that would extend the bike path system to Leadville, CO.

This section of path re-routes users to the eastside of Ten Mile Creek (behind the Copper Conoco Station) instead of the old route which had users on the frontage road in front of the Conoco Station. Users can either head towards Leadville which will eventually end about 1.5 miles at Hwy 91, or can turn at the half way point and head towards the Vail Pass bike path.
