How the Colorado DOT Hopes to Fix Our Damn Roads Now

The Election Day failure of two transportation measures, propositions 109and 110, puts the Colorado Department of Transportation in a tough spot. There’s widespread agreement that the road and highway system across the state needs significant improvements pronto, but thanks to voters, there will be no new, or newly designated, money to pay for them.

The department has a passel of major new efforts ready to roll, including the Floyd Hill Interstate 70 project. But now, says Amy Ford, CDOT’s chief of advanced mobility, she and her colleagues must figure out how to motor ahead without help from the ballot box.
