Vail Pass rest area will be closed Monday and Tuesday

The Vail Pass rest area, popular during the summer with bikers and others looking to enjoy the outdoors, will be closed for two days next week.

The Colorado Department of Transportation will perform maintenance on the wastewater plant on Interstate 70 at Exit 190, or the Vail Pass/Shrine Pass rest area. Work is scheduled for all of Monday, Aug. 4, and Tuesday, Aug. 5, and will require a full closure of the rest area.

Messaging boards will be set up on I-70, westbound at mile marker 195 and eastbound at mile marker 180, to alert drivers of the closure.
