Colorado Bridge Enterprise
The Colorado Bridge Enterprise (CBE) was formed in 2009 as part of the Funding Advancement for Surface Transportation and Economic Recovery (FASTER) legislation. It operates as a government-owned business within the Colorado Department of Transportation. The Colorado Transportation Commission serves as the Colorado Bridge Enterprise Board.
The purpose of the CBE is to finance, repair, reconstruct and replace bridges designated as structurally deficient or functionally obsolete, and rated “poor."
In order to accomplish this goal, a bridge safety surcharge ranging from $13 to $32 has been imposed on vehicle registration based upon vehicle weight. Revenues from the bridge safety surcharge fee are estimated to generate approximately $100 million in annual funding.
