Fix North I-25 Business Alliance Requests Federal Funding to Complete North 1-25 Express Lanes Project

On Monday, the Fort Collins Area Chamber of Commerce and the Fix North I-25 Business Alliance sent a joint letter asking Senators Michael Bennet and John Hickenlooper, and Congressmen Joe Neguse, Ken Buck and Ed Perlmutter to join forces as a coordinated Congressional delegation to position the North I-25 Corridor among the key state and nationally strategic transportation corridors for funding from any available funds that could become accessible with the passage of a stimulus transportation/infrastructure investment package, including the recently announced Biden Infrastructure Investment Plan. The Chamber was joined by the North I-25 Coalition and nearly 40 local governments, legislators and business organizations representing northern Colorado.

“We are so close to completing the $1.6 billion North I-25 Express Lanes project, but need just north of $660 million to get it across the finish line,” said Ann Hutchison, President & CEO of the Fort Collins Area Chamber. “It is incumbent on our leaders in Washington, DC, to pick up the mantle and get this project to completion. We are eager to work with them to secure the federal funding needed to keep Northern Colorado thriving.”
