Peak One Drive to Close for Construction

Contact: Robert Jacobs, Road & Bridge Director

SUMMIT COUNTY – On Thursday, July 30, work will begin on the final phase of reconstruction of Peak One Drive between the Summit County Commons and St. Anthony Summit Medical Center. The work on Peak One Drive will require a closure of approximately two weeks.

During construction, St. Anthony Summit Medical Center and the Summit County Medical Office Building will only be accessible at the upper entrance from Highway 9, and the County Commons will only be accessible from the lower entrance. Drivers should expect further delays due to CDOT’s ongoing work on Highway 9. The recreational pathway will remain open, with possible occasional detours.

The Peak One Drive reconstruction is one of several County road projects taking place this summer. Major improvements are slated for Huron Road, Heeney Road, Shekel Lane and Boreas Pass Road.

In July, construction began on Huron Road to repair the road surface and construct a recreational pathway connection between Huron Landing and Reiling Road. This long-awaited project will provide a safer pedestrian and bicycle connection between the residential neighborhood and community services and businesses, including the greater Summit County Recreational Pathway System.

Huron Road construction is scheduled to run through the end of August. This work will require some single-lane closures and occasional detours; it will involve significant work at the entrance to the neighborhood, so drivers and cyclists should anticipate traffic delays. 

Summit County is planning to begin work in late August or early September to repair significant damage to Heeney Road that resulted from geologic movement. This work will involve extended road closures and will likely run through the end of October. The damaged area is on the west side of the Green Mountain Dam, north of the area’s residential neighborhoods. Drivers will be able to access residences only from the southern entrance to Heeney Road; access to the dam and recreational areas will be from the north entrance.

In addition to the larger construction and maintenance projects, Summit County Road & Bridge crews are working throughout the county to conduct seasonal dust mitigation, pothole and road failure repairs, drainage maintenance and other summer upkeep.

"It has already been a long summer of construction, but there’s a lot of work left, so we hope everyone continues to have a fun, safe and enjoyable summer out on our County roads and paved pathways," Summit County Road & Bridge Director Robert Jacobs said. "When you see our folks working out there, please help ensure their safety by slowing down, being patient and paying close attention to flaggers."
