Transportation funding for roads, bridges and transit largely come from federal sources. This has included funding for projects important to the 7th Congressional District such as the US-36 Express Lanes Project, the I-25 Managed Lanes Project, and RTD FasTracks’ expansion. As a part of these and other projects, Ed supports including better options for pedestrians and bicyclists. These are important to creating an integrated transportation system with multimodal transportation options for Front Range residents.
In 2015, Congress passed and Ed supported the bipartisan Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act. This bill reauthorized our surface transportation programs for five years and provided guaranteed funding for highway, transit, and transportation safety programs including more than $3.4 billion in direct highway and transit formula funds for Colorado. It also provides certainty for CDOT, RTD, and local communities to help create jobs, repair our aging infrastructure, improve public transit, and strengthen our economy. Ed continues to support efforts to ensure the Highway Trust Fund becomes solvent to help guarantee these needed transportation investments in our communities.
It is clear additional investment in repairing our outdated infrastructure is necessary. Ed supports efforts to fund new transportation, transit, water, and other infrastructure projects so communities in Colorado can reduce congestion and improve quality of life.
