Sunnyside and Chaffee Park residents adjacent to I-70, and drivers on the highway, now see signs that CDOT’s I-70 noise wall replacement project has finally begun.

In late March, crews began dismantling and shredding 50-year-old timber fencing from Pecos to Zuni. A spokesperson for the project said crews will work in sections, beginning construction of concrete replacement walls as soon as possible after the timber fencing comes down. The entire project, covering 3 miles of fencing, is scheduled to wrap up in 2026.
