Responses to Move Colorado’s Gubernatorial Candidate Questionnaire from Jared Polis

Colorado’s transportation system is the backbone of our economy, connecting both businesses to their customers and all of us to each other. Under the Polis administration, Colorado is taking historic action to significantly improve our roads, modernize transportation and expand multimodal options so Coloradans can have a brighter future with less traffic, cleaner air, and more freedom. Last year, we passed one of the most comprehensive bipartisan transportation bills in our state’s history that provides sustainable funding to fix our roads, bridges, and tunnels. This 10-year plan dedicates significant resources to improving our roads, highways and bridges while also creating more transportation options for Coloradans. We have already delivered two back-to-back years of paving the greatest number of rural road miles in years and are delivering on more than 100 critical projects across the state. Colorado is also delivering a network of electric vehicle charging stations across the state and improving pedestrian and bicycle safety in cities and towns across the state through our Revitalizing Main Streets program. The Polis administration will continue improving our transportation system and expanding smart transportation and transit alternatives to save people money and give people more choices for how they get around our state.
