Robert T. Sollenberger: Zipper lanes a bad idea

Robert T. Sollenberger

It doesn’t take a degree in traffic engineering to realize the I-70 “zipper lane” idea has many, many drawbacks and should have been D.O.A. when first proposed. That it continues to be “studied” is either insanity, or politics, or both in action. I can think of many better ways to spend $24 million than in placating spoiled, impatient Front Range skiers and riders.

My father once told me that “He who robs Peter to pay Paul, will always have the support of Paul.” Vail Resorts’ position that the state should shoulder the cost of I-70 improvements isn’t even disingenuous, but rather is typical of the arrogance and greed of big business.
