ROUTT COUNTY FAIRGROUNDS
Routt County used Lottery dollars to build a new and improved bathhouse at the fairgrounds. The previous 46-year-old restrooms had no showers, poor lighting, and lacked proper heat. The restrooms had been closed since 2008. The new and improved building is now widely used by visitors, users of the skate park across the street, hunters, and even local contractors and truckers. Great job!
Our project is featured with the other winners on the CO lottery website. We are #18 as you scroll through the photos.
