Our next installment in the "Virtual Tour" series is scheduled to take place on Sunday (12/10) at 3 PM ET. Come join me and members of the AARoads community as we profile Interstate 70 across western Colorado and the Denver metro area and discuss the history and features of this highway all while enjoying a real-time video trip along the length of one of America's most scenic stretches of the Interstate Highway System.

A link to the event location can be found below and we look forward to seeing you in attendance:

The Frisco to Silverthorne aux. lane project has wrapped up with the next project being dubbed the Exit 203 Project in Frisco.

If split into two phases, the first phase would focus on replacing the existing roundabout with a traffic signal
Outstanding - the actual elimination of a roundabout!

I think as we mature more we’re going to find roundabouts are good in some places and others not so much. Personally I prefer traffic signals but I can see benefits of roundabouts.

I was just up there yesterday. The Silverthorne/Frisco I-70 stretch is great.

Even on a Tuesday, there was a bit of a backup from WB I-70 to SB CO9.

I've mostly used that roundabout in very early morning when I would head to hike south of Breckenridge. It works great at 4am, but I could see it being inadequate for peak hours.

One of the last times I used that roundabout I almost got creamed by someone coming off the WB 70 ramp who refused to yield!

BTW, I always thought that "Frisco Breckenridge" would be a great character name in a western:

"I hear Frisco Breckenridge is on the next train into town".

The ones on Moorland Rd in New Berlin WI are a nightmare and it's only going to get worse. While they do work in some places that aren't suitable everywhere.
