April 13, 2022 - Boulder County (applicant), CDOT (sponsor), and RTD (sponsor) submitted an application for $25M to the USDOT for a Rebuilding American Infrastructure with Sustainability and Equity (RAISE) grant. This funding would enable CDOT and RTD to construct additional multimodal improvements on the CO 119 Diagonal Highway not currently programmed for implementation through the CO 119 Safety and Mobility Project or other active projects on the corridor. Of the $124M needed for the entire project, 80% (or $99M) has already been acquired. The RAISE grant would provide the remaining funding piece necessary to implement this critical infrastructure project.
