Drivers should plan alternative routes while road crews repave Dillon Dam Road. Daily single lane closures through August 4th, with daily full closures beginning thereafter through August 11. Road will be open after each business day and on weekend.

SUMMIT COUNTY—Drivers, campground users, and other recreation users of Dillon Dam Road should expect delays on Dillon Dam Road from the guard gate to Frisco's Summit Boulevard as crews from Summit County and the Town of Frisco continue paving work on this section of the road. Alternate routes should be used during this time.

  • No weekend closures are expected along the road.
  • Road will re-open each day after crews have finished for the day, usually around 7pm.
  • Large RVs and daily paid USFS campground users along Dillon Dam Road will be accommodated.
  • The bike path will remain open; however, cyclists and path users should expect large machinery and disruption during the day.
  • There will be NO parking access on this road until the project is concluded.
