You have heard of Vail Pass, Vail Resort, and the town of Vail, now get to know the man behind that famous name. Charlie Vail served as Colorado's chief highway engineer from 1930 to 1945. He transformed Colorado from dirt highways to a paved state-wide network allowing residents and visitors to access the high country. His control over federal funding and highway jobs made enemies of Governor Ed Johnson and the Denver Post. Anyone traveling Colorado highways today can thank Engineer Vail.
