Here are notable Colorado road projects that aren’t funded

The Colorado Department of Transportation’s 10-year, $5 billion strategic projects plan includes $1.8 million worth of projects with funding in the first four years (through 2023 or so). Below are some notable projects in the unfunded later years of the plan; in some cases the dollar amounts are partial budgets, with other funding sources intended.

As reported in a companion story, Colorado has struggled more than most states to pay for transportation projects.

  • I-25 in central Denver, reconstruction and potential express lanes ($200 million)
  • North I-25 express lanes from Colorado 56 to Colorado 66 ($196 million)
  • I-70 at Floyd Hill, adding westbound lane ($100 million)
  • Sixth Avenue Freeway and Wadsworth Boulevard interchange ($70 million)
  • Denver metro area arterial transit improvements ($70 million)
  • U.S. 285 improvements near Pine Junction ($60 million)
  • C-470 widening and interchange reconstruction between U.S. 285 and Morrison Road ($56 million)
  • I-25 HOV lanes in Colorado Springs ($55 million)
  • I-70 west Vail Pass auxiliary lanes ($50 million)
  • I-76 reconstruction from Fort Morgan to Brush ($45 million)
