New public roads trigger lawsuit against county

Resident says increased traffic to BLM land causes unfair burden
In September, Montezuma County designated roads in the Summit Lake West subdivision as green-signed, including Road 35.6. The change makes them officially open to the public and under county jurisdiction. A resident recently filed a lawsuit demanding the county commit to more year-round maintenance.
The Bureau of Land Management has reported it is interested in putting a public access gate and parking lot where County Road N parallels a parcel of BLM land south of Summit Lake. Use would be nonmotorized, with an emphasis on hiking and horse riding.
