Filed under: Daily News |

The State of Colorado has launched a Web site that list all the state’s road projects being paid for through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

The Web site,, includes project descriptions, amount of ARRA funds dedicated to the project, project status and photos.

The site will be updated biweekly.

Colorado will receive more than $400 million for transportation projects and $103 million for transit projects. As a requirement of ARRA, states must obligate up to 50 percent of their highway funding within 120 days. In Colorado, that means committing at least half of approximately $280 million to projects within 120 days. The remaining funds must be allocated to projects within one year.
