Repairing and preparing our infrastructure for the millions of Colorado citizens that will be added over the next several decades must be one of the Legislature’s top concerns. The vitality of I-70 is of particular importance to Eagle and Routt County’s economy, and making sure that we have safe and efficient roadways will be a priority.
Infrastructure improvement should be a bipartisan issue; smart investment creates jobs, boosts local economies, keeps people safe, and at its most basic level: keeps you from sitting in traffic. I will continue to support any legislative effort that prioritizes job creation through infrastructure projects and increases safety and convenience for motorists because Colorado’s depends on it.
Further, parts of Eagle and Routt County and many other parts of the state do not have access to high-speed internet access. Our Legislature needs to lead on this issue to provide all corners of our state access to this crucial service.
