Gardner Announces $12 Million Competitive Highway Bridge Program Grant for CDOT

Washington, D.C. – Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO), a member of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, announced today that the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) will receive a $12.475 million Competitive Highway Bridge Program (CHBP) grant from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) to rehabilitate bridges in Colorado’s 4th and 5th Congressional districts. The project is aimed at ensuring impacted bridges in Southern and Western Colorado will not require future load restrictions.


“The announcement that the Department of Transportation will award funds for bridge rehabilitation in Colorado is welcome news,” said Senator Gardner. “With Colorado’s population growing at one of the fastest rates in the country, I will continue to advocate for improvements for our transportation systems at the federal level to ensure their safety and efficiency for Coloradans.”
