Officials: Dillon Dam Road likely will remain closed until after March 20

FRISCO — The Dillon Dam Road likely will be closed for at least the next two weeks due to unsafe conditions, according to Summit County officials.

A number of small avalanches and rockslides reached the road Sunday afternoon, and a falling boulder tore out a segment of anchors holding a protective net in place on a cliff face overlooking the road.

County officials met Tuesday morning with experts, who are working on a proposal for the necessary repairs to the net based on their observations, according to Robert Jacobs, the county’s road and bridge director.

The earliest contractors will be able to start work is next week, and it will take another week to complete. Jacobs said the road likely won’t reopen until sometime after March 20.
