The following is a statement from Sandra Hagen Solin, spokesperson for Fix Colorado Roads, regarding the new quarterly revenue forecast for the state of Colorado:
“With the news that Colorado is well-positioned with $1.3B in new projected revenue, the opportunity to accelerate critical transportation projects across Colorado – from our major interstates to regionally significant projects in every corner of the state – becomes more crucial to our economic success and stability.
“This additional revenue provides a strong path forward to deliver $300M+ of annual revenue to fund the bond package to support many critical transportation needs for our state.
“We urge legislators from both sides of the aisle to work together to find the common ground on a solution for the entire state. At a time of economic prosperity for our state, the time is now to address Colorado’s transportation needs.”
