Drivers and recreationalists may experience delays and impacts along Dillon Dam Road from North Summit Boulevard in Frisco to the guard shack.

SUMMIT COUNTY – Summit County Public Works announced the beginning of its repaving project on Dillon Dam Road will begin Monday, July 24th, in cooperation with the Town of Frisco. The project, intended to conclude within three weeks, will impact drivers and recreationalists, including those accessing the campgrounds in the area.

The project will involve mill and overlay from the intersection of Dillon Dam Road and North Summit Boulevard east to the guard shack at the dam. Operations are anticipated to take place between Monday and Friday, but some Saturday operations may be necessary. During the project, drivers are advised to use I-70 to minimize delay.

Necessary mid-day closures of the road to drivers will be conditions-based and notified via the County’s SCAlert messaging system. Summit County residents and visitors are strongly encouraged to sign up this text and email-based alert system at

“This is an important route for Summit County residents and visitors,” said Jim Benkelman with the County’s Road and Bridge Department. “Combining forces with Town of Frisco on this project will include much-needed maintenance work in the parking areas and a better experience for all users along this stretch of Dillon Dam Road,” he added. 


  • Drivers should expect delays including single lane travel and brief holds. 
  • The recreation path will remain open at this time, but users should expect equipment operations alongside the path. 
  • Campers using Heaton Bay Campground and other Forest Service access points will experience impacts and delays, but the County is in contact with the Forest Service to help minimize disruption.
  • Paddlers and others accessing the lake along the Dam Road should choose other access points as parking will be unavailable in most areas.
