Let’s hear it for the sound wall

Dillon Valley residents love it when Interstate 70 closes. It’s the quiet that becomes deafening, a welcome change from the usual roar of tires and jake brakes.

Today, Dillon Valley residents must put up with the pounding of steal beams into the ground. We think they can tolerate that noise because the end result is the long-awaited sound wall the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) has promised.

Last year, the county commissioners stuck up for the sound wall as a priority among other local choices for CDOT funding. Elected officials from the county’s four towns agreed.

Dillon Valley folks have waited long enough.
