Race day closures for 106 West Triathlon on Sept. 10
Race day closures for 106 West Tri Sept. 10
The 106 West Triathlon debuts in Summit County this weekend, with a half-Ironman and quarter-Ironman held on routes spread between the Dillon Marina, Keystone, Montezuma and Frisco. The 56-mile bike leg is held entirely on road — not recpath — and that means residents should expect delays and closures from the starting gun around 9 a.m. to the finish around 3 p.m. Peak traffic is from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Here’s a look at the biggest closures this weekend:
Lodgepole Street in Dillon
Eastbound Lake Dillon Drive
Dillon Dam Road, from Heaton Bay Campground to U.S. Highway 6
Eastbound U.S. Highway 6, from Dillon to Montezuma Road
The bike route will take up the entire eastbound lane of U.S. Highway 6. All motorized travel on the highway will be restricted to the westbound lane, with law enforcement at crossings and other high-traffic areas between Dillon and Frisco to direct traffic. Plan ahead.
If you’re watching the race, there will be one-way traffic on a loop west down Lake Dillon Drive to East LaBonte and out Tenderfoot. Police will direct traffic left or right at the eagle statue on U.S. Highway 6.
If you live in Dillon Valley, the only available exit during the race is Little Beaver Trail.
Summit Stage service will also be affected on race day. Dillon Ridge and Summit Cove bus stops will be open, along with the westbound Elkhorn and Corinthian Hill stops. The eastbound Tenderfoot and Corinthian Hill stops will be closed, along with east and westbound Lake Dillon Drive, LaBonte and Fire Station bus stops.
