Divide District Road Conditions

CURRENT AS OF 6/24/2021

Emergency Closures:

1). 430 Lake Fork Road is closed approximately ¼ mile past Shaw Lake due to a large washout. Shaw Lake remains accessible. The road is expected to be repaired by late summer of 2021.

The table below lists the majority of roads on the District. For information on a road not listed below, please contact the district office. In general, most roads are open by May 15 and are closed by snow by the end of December. Many roads are groomed snowmobile trails during the winter and are not open to wheeled vehicles.

Spring closures vary depending upon conditions but generally are in place from mid-March until early May. Spring closures protect soft road beds from damage and also help protect big game during late winter and early spring. Unless otherwise posted, all roads are open to Non-Motorized use.
