No respect

I am writing this correspondence regarding your recent decision to close the Dillon Dam Road. I feel this is a decision made hastily without any or very little input from the people affected most by this action.

We have a daughter who is confined to a wheelchair and needs transportation from the Summit Stage to her work place in Frisco. By your action, during many times of the year she and many other disabled individuals served by the Summit Stage will be confined to their buses due to traffic problems on Interstate 70.

The possible closures of the interstate impacts the disabled with the inability to pick the individuals up at the proper time because of traffic problems. Currently the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) is routing semi-trucks over Loveland Pass to re-connect with I-70 at the Silverthorne interchange, causing massive traffic problems in this area.

Needless to say, your actions reflect a decision made with either poor or no input from the people most affected. I’m sure this e-mail will fall on deaf ears and receive no response. I am a fourth generation native raised in Denver as my wife is also a native of Denver and a resident of Summit for the past 37 years, and again your organization shows no respect for our community and feel you can run over our residents without regard.
