Snow removal and winter maintenance are some of the most important functions of the Summit County Road and Bridge Department.
Our staff plows and maintains 290 lane-miles of road. Summit County does not maintain state highways, streets in incorporated towns or private roads.
County roads are categorized on a priority basis, and the roads with the highest priority are plowed first. Arterial roads, such as the Dillon Dam Road, Swan Mountain Road and school bus routes, receive priority maintenance. Secondary priority is given to collector roads through subdivisions, followed by other lower volume roads.
