Fourth year of 2C paving wraps up

Share this page:

The fourth year of 2C paving is coming to a close and the Public Works Department is well in its way to fulfilling the promise made to voters to pave 1,000 lane miles in five years.

 

The overall impact of 2C since paving began in 2016 is hard to miss as you drive across the city. We have 854 lane miles of smooth, freshly resurfaced roadway. That's about the same distance from Colorado Springs to St. Louis, Missouri or Boise, Idaho.

That paving work is in addition to the improved condition of our curbs, gutters, and pedestrian ramps. Replacing or repairing concrete is an essential part of roadway maintenance, which protects streets from deterioration. In addition, these improvements add pedestrian ramps and create passable routes that meet Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards and enhance accessibility in Colorado Springs. 

Revenue from 2C is put in a special fund that is used exclusively on road improvements within the City of Colorado Springs. You can track 2C revenue and spending online using the City's financial transparency tool OpenBudget

This year crews paved 177 lane miles including major sections of Dublin Blvd, South Carefree Circle, and Union Blvd.

The 2020 2C paving list is already available on the City's website. Paving will include Garden of the Gods Road, Mesa Road, 30th Street, Nevada Ave, Platte Ave, Union Blvd, Jet Wing Drive, East Cheyenne Mountain Blvd, and many more.
