Lawsuit against county’s road decision is dismissed

Road maintenance is outside court review, judge says
Several roads in the West Summit Lake subdivision were changed to green-signed, reaffirming that they are public roads and under county jurisdiction. A resident sued the county, claiming that the decision would unfairly increase traffic and maintenance costs that have been done by residents for decades. But a judge threw out the case saying there was no legal standing.
Montezuma County and the Bureau of Land Management had hoped to open an access point on County Road N to public lands south of Summit Lake, but the plan hit a snag when a survey revealed there is a 2-foot strip of private land between a county road and the BLM boundary.
