Snow Delays Highway Cleanup

VAIL VALLEY, Colorado — The highway cleanup planned for Saturday in Colorado's Vail Valley has been postponed a week.

After a foot of snow buried the Vail Valley organizers on Thursday decided to reschedule the cleanup for Saturday, May 8.

“We want people to be able to see the trash,” said Melissa Macdonald, executive director of the Eagle River Watershed Council.

The party for participants in the cleanup is still on for this coming Saturday at 4Eagle Ranch.
