Groups fight new transportation fees in Colorado

Cars, trucks and campers heading westbound brake as they come into big curves while traveling down Floyd Hill along Interstate 70 on Oct. 4, 2021, near Idaho Springs. The upcoming Floyd Hill project on I-70 would rebuild the section and is one of the largest expansion projects in the Colorado Department of Transportation’s plans, estimated at $600 million to $700 million. At the same time, CDOT is making plans to start a “micro-transit” system using vans and small buses to encourage more people to travel into the mountains without cars.


A legal challenge has been filed against new transportation fees passed by Colorado lawmakers last year, arguing they took an illegal side-step around voters when they enacted the landmark funding law.
