Colorado's transportation needs have gone unmet for decades. In every corner of our state, we lack the resources to maintain our roads, highways and local bus routes. That's why Senator Rachel Zenzinger, along with Rep. Tracy Kraft-Tharp, is hosting a special town hall meeting with officials and proponents of the "Let's Go, Colorado" campaign.
Please join us on Saturday, July 14 from 11:30 am - 12:30 pm at the Standley Lake Library in Arvada, for a presentation and panel discussion about the potential ballot measure to fund transportation. Tony Milo of the Colorado Contractors' Association will be outline the initiative and answer your questions. He will be joined by Andrew Karsian of CDOT and Mayor Marc Williams of Arvada.
CDOT has more than $9 billion in projects, and that's only part of the issue. Our local communities lack the resources to address congestion, maintain roads and improve safety as well. In order for us to keep up with our state's transportation needs, we must have a sustainable, dedicated funding source to address critical transportation construction, improvements, maintenance and operations.
