Berlaimont Estates applied for a permanent easement across National Forest System lands, seeking to accommodate permanent, year-round vehicular access to the property. The proposed access, approximately 5.3 miles, will utilize and improve the existing Forest Service Road network to minimize disturbance and limit construction impact.

In 2014, the Eagle County Board of County Commissioners granted a variance from dual access standard while providing for emergency turnout spacing, and road design standards. The design of the proposed road ensures public safety while creating the least environmental impact in accessing the property.
