Wednesday, December 6, 2023

DENVER - Today, Governor Polis released the following statement applauding the Biden administration for including Front Range Rail in the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law’s Corridor ID Program. 

"Coloradans want Front Range Rail and I've heard firsthand from people in Pueblo, Fort Collins, and from across our state that they want more options to get where they need to go efficiently and affordably. Front Range Passenger Rail will modernize our transit system, save people money, and support jobs and housing across our state. I applaud the Department of Transportation and the Biden administration for securing and providing this funding, and for recognizing the need for this service and the promise to get it done soon. Colorado’s participation in the new Corridor Identification program shows that this project is ready to move forward,” said Colorado Governor Polis.
