summit daily news

FRISCO – Interstate 70 congestion, the Dillon Dam Road and local transit operations are up for discussion tonight at a public meeting in the Summit County Community and Senior Center.

“With no significant action on highway improvements expected for six more years and no high-speed rail solution until 2020 at the earliest, local and state officials are looking into short-term (I-70) solutions…” according to a press release from organizer Our Future Summit.

The discussion is to address bills recently proposed at the Capitol to help alleviate traffic problems in the short-term.

Participants are to include Frisco town manager and I-70 Coalition chair Michael Penny, Colorado State Patrol Captain John Lupton, Summit County Sheriff John Minor as well as officials from Denver Water and Summit Stage.

“With the downturn in the economy, Summit County’s free public transportation system faces challenges in maintaining a level of service that visitors and locals alike have grown to appreciate,” according to the press release.

The free event is to occur tonight from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. For more information call Sandy Briggs at (970) 389-0987.

Robert Allen can be contacted at (970) 668-4628 or
