Project Description and Location

The Public Works Department for Pueblo County has identified a series of roadway segments on the St. Charles Mesa that need road and drainage improvements, all located to the east of I-25 and south of the Arkansas River. Numerous road segments on this list are available for partial funding from the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT), including one project that received a funding grant in 2017 and construction is almost complete, planning for the County 1A funds to repay the roadway fund for the cost of this once project 1A funds are available.
