The recent passage of the FASTER bill means that now drivers will be paying an additional $40 on their car registrations. This money will fund construction projects around the state, mainly addressing the repair of structurally deficient bridges.
Where will this money go? By utilizing the Colorado Dept. of Transportation (CDOT)’s website, you can find out about current and upcoming construction projects near you. The CDOT website features an annual map of construction projects around the state, as well as webpages providing information on many of the larger projects. This information can help commuters plan alternate routes and can help those living and working nearby to adjust to the projects. To find these webpages, just visit the CDOT homepage and click on the Travel Info menu.
