About the Nonattainment Area Air Pollution Mitigation Enterprise

This Enterprise was created within the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) to support mitigation of the environmental and health impacts of increased air pollution from motor vehicle emissions in nonattainment areas that results from the rapid and continuing growth in retail deliveries made by motor vehicles and in prearranged rides provided by transportation network companies.

Enterprise funding is for eligible projects that reduce traffic, including demand management projects that encourage alternatives to driving alone or that directly reduce air pollution, such as retrofitting of construction equipment, construction of roadside vegetation barriers, and planting trees along (CRS 43-4-1303).
