VAIL, Colo. (CBS4) – The Colorado Department of Transportation is working to improve the drive on Interstate 70. There’s a plan to add an additional lane between the Vail Pass rest stop and the East Vail exit.

That section of I-70 can be a challenge to navigate with steep slopes, especially in the winter. Officials say an extra lane will make travel safer.

CDOT will host a public meeting on the project next Saturday in Vail.
