Water Main Replacement Project

ROad closures & delays

Post Date:04/06/2017 1:49 PM

The Town of Dillon announces road closures and expected traffic delays beginning Wednesday, April, 5 from 7:00 a.m. through 7:00 p.m. and are expected to run through the end of April. The road closures will be located in the accelerator lane on West Anemone and eastbound HWY 6 to replace a portion of the water main located in the area.

 

“We determined that we would need to replace the water main upon inspection of the line during the emergency repair last December,” said Public Works Director, Scott O’Brien. “The work needs to be completed before CDOT’s HWY 6 and 9 overlay project planned for this spring.”

 

Streets impacts will include: Hwy 6 eastbound will be reduced to one through lane of traffic from West Anemone to the Dam Road. The Left turn from westbound Hwy 6 onto East Anemone will be closed.  Road closures will be on a rolling basis as Public Works makes every effort to re-open closed portions of roadway and intersections promptly.

 

Detour signage will be in place to direct traffic to the area. Residential units and businesses can be accessed using an alternative route at West Anemone and Little Dam Road.

 

Contact Town of Dillon at 970-468-2403 for additional information.

The Town of Dillon at a Glance 

The Town of Dillon was incorporated Jan. 26, 1883 at the site of a trading post and stage stop. The town has moved three times: once to be closer to the railroad and a second time to be located between three rivers: the Blue, the Ten Mile and the Snake.

The third move began in 1956 when the Denver Water Board told the townspeople they must sell their property and be out of town by 1961. The final location for the town was selected on the shore of the new reservoir, where it continues to thrive today.

The Town of Dillon is a full-service community with a year-round residential and seasonal population of 2,766. Dillon¹s beautiful location in the heart of Summit County provides an unrivaled scenic backdrop for an abundance of summer activities. Its close proximity to Summit County¹s ski areas makes it a convenient lodging choice for winter vacationers. The many condominiums and motel rooms bring the peak population to about 5,200 people. 

The Dillon Town Center is home to many Summit County businesses, dining and entertainment opportunities: Dillon Reservoir, Dillon Marina offering boat rental, kayak and Stand-Up Paddle Board rentals, sailing lessons and guided sailboat tours and a seasonal lakeside bar and grill, post office, bowling alley, movie theatre and multiple parks featuring playgrounds, community spaces, ball field and hiking and biking trails. 

The Dillon Ridge Market Place stores, on Highway 6, are a mix of local and national businesses offering groceries, a movie theater, restaurants, sporting goods and more. 

Although Dillon has retained much of its small-town charm, it¹s definitely not sleepy.   
Summer in Dillon is unrivaled for family activities, with boating in Lake Dillon, Swing and Country Dance Nights, Friday Farmers Markets and weekend concerts at the open-air Lake Dillon Amphitheatre. Enjoy the vistas, fresh air and pocket parks while enjoying the more than 25 miles of paved recreation path that circles the lake.
