This section of roadway has severe damage that makes the road impassible. Mineral County may not have it repaired until the spring of 2019.

Virginia Lakes Road: Snow removal operations will be suspended as of January 16, at 3:00 p.m. The "Road Closed" sign will be placed at the bottom parking lot, and the road will be open to over-snow travel. Residents are encouraged to relocate wheeled vehicles to the bottom parking lot prior to the closure. The closure determination will be revisited every weekday thereafter, and snow removal operations will resume when weather, avalanche conditions, and resources permit.

Actual road closures and activity will be updated periodically – please consider these notices as warnings, and plan accordingly.
