I-70 Gateway Project

The first phase of the I-70 Gateway Project is starting to take shape. Three of the six steel structures were placed in the northeast quadrant of the I-70/SR 9 interchange this week. The remaining three structures will be set next week in the southwest quadrant. These steel towers will be faced with an outer shell of steel and glass in the next few months and will reach heights of 37', 47', and 57'.
 
These towers, along with four street-level limestone beacons, will provide a lighted gateway into the City of Greenfield. The lighting on the towers will be changeable based on specific holidays or time of the year. Future phases will include additional towers and interchange landscaping. Mayor Fewell believes this beautification of Greenfield's "front door" from I-70 will make Greenfield stand out along the I-70 corridor and promote the City and economic development.
 
"Greenfield only has one exit from the interstate, one chance to make a big impression. We're hoping that this project will attract visitors into town so they can spend their money at our local shops and explore our historic downtown. We've got a lot of great things happening in Greenfield and this will help share our story."
- Mayor Chuck Fewell
