Key Accomplishments

• Consolidates two substandard interchanges into one
modern, safe facility.
• Provides longer acceleration/deceleration ramps/lanes
to improve merging and exiting on Mainline I-70.
• Provides auxiliary lane between the Turnpike and I-70.
• Increases capacity for commercial vehicles.
• Creates a connection (Rachel Drive) between
Byers Ave. and Bair Blvd., including a roundabout at
Rachel Dr./Bair Blvd.

Community Partnership Committee (CPC)
This group of local business owners, residents, emergency service providers and other stakeholders, has developed communication strategies to help drivers travel safely through the work area and continue to visit the local businesses open during construction. The strategies are part of a Construction Communication Plan and rely on communication media which the Committee members currently use.
