Let's Go Colorado - Vote 'YES' On 110!
Proposition 110 "The Facts":
Colorado's Crumbling Infrastructure:
Each dollar spent on road improvements results in an average benefit of $5.20 by reducing delays and fuel consumption, and improving safety.
78% of Colorado’s roads will need to be repaired in the next 10 years, but the state lacks the budget to keep up. It’s time to stop the band-aid approach.
Potholes and rough roads damage a vehicle’s tires and suspensions, costing the average Colorado driver $468 in repairs each year.
Traffic congestion in the major metro areas continues to increase with over 50 hours per year spent in traffic by those in the Denver Metro region.
Proposition 110 Does:
Proposition 110 will create a new revenue source to fund Colorado’s crumbling roads, bridges and other infrastructure. It will generate an estimated $767 million in the first year.
This isn’t a permanent tax - there is a 20 year sunset.
No corner of the state is left untouched by Proposition 110. Nearly 80% of trips we take begin and end on a local road. The generated revenue will be distributed to local priorities across the entire state of Colorado.
Tourists would pay their fair share. More than 39 million out-of-state tourists would help fund our transportation system when they purchase taxable goods.
