County approves road work

The El Paso County Board of Commissioners has approved a construction contract in the amount of $4,032,839 for Rocky Mountain Materials and Asphalt Inc. The contract is for laying hot-mix asphalt pavement to repair roads throughout El Paso County, according to a news release. The Pikes Peak Rural Transportation Authority (PPRTA) is funding the project.In November 2004, voters passed the PPRTA. Monies for the authority are garnered through a 1 percent sales tax, which was implemented Jan. 1, 2005. El Paso County, the city of Colorado Springs, the town of Green Mountain Falls and the city of Manitou Springs share in the tax revenue. Fifty-five percent of the revenue goes to road improvements, 35 percent to maintenance and 10 percent to funding transit.”This winter has been particularly hard on our roads and we are constantly having to reevaluate were we spend these resources,” said County Commissioner Board Chair Dennis Hisey.For more information visit the Transportation Department’s Web site at
