Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Project description and location

The future extension of Joe Martinez Boulevard, running from southeastern Pueblo West to the City of Pueblo and possibly connecting into downtown Pueblo, requires study, political cooperation among multiple jurisdictions, and an outside (State or Federal) funding source as the primary tool to develop this project. The County 1A Community Improvement Program has specifically identified 1A funding for an extension grant match, whereby 1A funds would be utilized to attain outside funding using County funds as the local match. The Joe Martinez Boulevard extension is such a large project that it will require extensive time and commitment from multiple parties, in addition to funding, to bring this project to completion.
