CDOT awards $7.4 million for 19 Northeast Colorado projects

March 18, 2015 - Northeastern Colorado/CDOT Region 4 - NORTHEAST COLORADO – The Colorado Department of Transportation has selected a total of 19 projects from Northeastern Colorado to receive federal matching funds from the Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP).

“TAP project applications in Northeast Colorado embraced new partnerships for innovative projects,” said Johnny Olson, CDOT regional transportation director for Northeast Colorado. “All of these investments will benefit the transportation system locally and regionally.”

In October 2014, a call for applications was issued by the region for approximately $7.4 million for Fiscal Year 2015-17. The response was overwhelming. Agencies submitted 58 applications requesting $40 million for three years.

Each project had to have at least a 20 percent local match. Projects must be completed by 2018.
