Thank you for attending the 2019 Annual Concrete Pavement Workshop!

A huge thank you to everyone who braved the weather to attend the concrete pavement workshop on March 14th!  Your participation and the discussions that take place are valuable to improving concrete pavement construction in Colorado and Wyoming.  Several of you made tremendous efforts to participate – including one speaker who spent the night stranded in her vehicle and then presented while running on very little sleep.

Special thanks to all our sponsors, exhibitors, speakers, and volunteers for helping us put on the event.  We appreciate everyone’s patience with the last-minute schedule adjustments and the large number of remote presentations from our speakers whose flights were cancelled.

We will be providing links to most of the presentations – check back for more information in the near future.  We look forward to seeing you next March at our 2020 Annual Concrete Pavement Workshop!

Colorado needs a sustainable funding source for transportation, and Proposition 110 will deliver

What Is Funded?

110 will address major projects on I-25, I-70 and the state highways that connect our communities throughout Colorado. Local governments will have full flexibility of their share of the funding, allowing our communities to meet their diverse needs throughout the state. Multimodal funding will support transportation options that decrease traffic congestion and protect our air quality. This funding could be used to support urban and rural bus service, large scale bike lanes and paths, and improvements for pedestrians.

Let’s Go, Colorado Certified for November Ballot

Proposition 110 Dedicates Sales Tax to Roads, Bridges & Multimodal Projects To Address Congestion, Safety

The statewide coalition Let’s Go, Colorado announced on August 24th that its proposed comprehensive, bipartisan transportation funding solution was certified for the November General Election ballot by the Colorado Secretary of State as Proposition 110. 

“Coloradans deserve a solution to our growing transportation crisis that is guaranteed to generate the revenue to address long-neglected projects in every corner of our state,” said Lone Tree Mayor Jackie Millet, a Republican. “Proposition 110 is the only measure on this year’s ballot that can fund the transportation safety, capacity and mobility improvements that our citizens and businesses are demanding. Plus, it empowers local communities to tackle our toughest transportation challenges. Proposition 110 is the answer Colorado needs.”

“The Western Slope has been promised transportation solutions for many years, but the reality is that the state funds aren’t there – and won’t be there without the common-sense solution that Proposition 110 offers,” said Christian Reece, Executive Director of Club 20, a non-partisan advocacy coalition for Western Colorado. “We can’t tie our economic future to more promises or proposals driven by narrow ideology.  We need a solution that truly addresses transportation problems that have lingered for years, and that requires new, dedicated revenue. It’s basic math and basic common sense. Club 20 strongly supports Proposition 110.
