"[T]he Colorado Transportation Commission on Thursday opened a $1.6 billion spigot for road projects across the state over the next three years," reports Jon Murray. Parts of Interstate 25, Interstate 70, and Interstate 270 will receive funding for widening and improvements.

"Less knotty stretches of state roads in all corners of the state will see complete funding for significant improvements, especially on state highways," reports Murray.

According to Murray, the $1.6 billion program will fund the most substantial and wide-ranging list of projects in years for Colorado. The money required several pieces of legislation, approved between 2017 and 2019. More details on the project lists and next steps for the projects are included in the source article.
