SOUTH FRONTAGE ROAD ROUNDABOUT PROJECT
Construction of the South Frontage Road Roundabout project will begin April 12, following the close of ski season, and is scheduled to be completed by early November. The project includes construction of a new two-lane roundabout just west of the Vail municipal building and Vail Health. The project also includes extending the existing four-lane roadway section with landscape medians and sidewalks from the municipal building west to the Lionshead parking structure.

The project will be completed in three major phases:
Phase 1 | April - June
Includes the project’s most impactful work to access points and adjacent properties. Work within this phase includes the eastbound traffic lanes, the southern sidewalk, southern retaining wall, utilities and the southern access points.
Phase 2 | July - August
Includes the project’s less impactful work and minimizes impacts to access points and adjacent properties. Work within this phase includes the construction of the westbound lanes, northern sidewalk and utilities.
Phase 3 | October - September
Includes the project’s final completion with median/landscape work, final tie-ins and final asphalt surfacing.
A message from Vail Health:
Patients with appointments should allow 15 minutes extra arrival time in case there is any construction traffic.
The front drive and parking structures for Vail Health Hospital will be fully open and operational.
The front entrance to the Medical Professional Building will not be accessible to pedestrians or vehicles from April 13-June 25. Access to the building during that time will be through the parking garage; access to the Medical Professional Building parking garage from South Frontage Road and W. Meadow Dr will not be disrupted.
