CDOT starts $2.5 million wildlife fence installation on I-70
March 24, 2017
The Colorado Department of Transportation recently started construction on a wildlife fence along Interstate 70. The fence will be installed along the highway over more than 40 miles in order to reduce the number of collisions with wildlife.
The project will span from mile marker 130 west of Dotsero to marker 171.5, west of Eagle-Vail. Fence installation will cost more than $2.5 million. The project will be completed at the end of 2018 and will include shoulder and lane closures. Closures on Monday through Thursday will be from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and from 7 a.m. until noon on Fridays. Overnight work on the weekends will be scheduled if necessary. For project updates, email email@example.com.
