State Transportation Plan

Legislation and policies at both the state (43-1-1103, C.R.S.) and federal (23 USC 134/135) levels require the development of a comprehensive, long-range Statewide Transportation Plan that encompasses at least a 20-year period and incorporates the priorities and the needs of the TPRs across the state.
