Paying for big construction projects gets really expensive really quickly. So the Colorado Department of Transportation often has a limited amount to spend on new roads or interchanges. But as planning for the new Grand Bridge in Glenwood Springs continues, lots of related improvements are creeping in, and CDOT can’t necessarily pay for all of them. Joe Elsen is the agency’s lead engineer on project. He recently spoke with APR’s Elise Thatcher, and says Garfield County may have to pitch in.
