More Funding for I-25
On September 10th transportation advocates were pleased to learn that nearly $7 million in federal grant money was awarded to the Colorado Department of Transportation’s I-25 North Project to fund work around the I-25/Colo. 56 interchange in Berthoud. The Berthoud improvements include rebuilding the interchange so the interstate passes over the highway and expanding the bridge over the Little Thompson River to continue the southbound acceleration lane.
To date, at least $934.4 million has been committed to North I-25 over the past five years. While $7 million may not seem like a lot, transportation funding is now a “quilt-making process and Northern Colorado is making great progress towards completing a third lane in each direction from SH 14 (Mulberry) to SH 66 (Longmont).
