  12. CDOT’s 28 Strategic Corridors • In 1990s, CDOT developed a list of 28 Strategic Corridors, 3 of which were located in El Paso County • I-25 from South Academy to Briargate (Complete) • I-25 from Colorado Springs North to County Line • Powers Boulevard (SH 21) • List included specific dollar commitments

  13. 28 Strategic Corridors Historically funded primarily by SB 97-1 Completion accelerated by Trans Bonds approved by Colorado Voters in 1999’s Referendum A 22 of 28 are complete based on dollar commitment 2 of the 6 remaining are in El Paso County 2035 Plan adopted in 2007 allowed full promised funding of $600+ million for both corridors plus $400+ million more for additional projects, such as US 24 or more work on Powers and/or I-25

  14. Strategic Corridors Funding Was Eliminated by SB 228 in 2009 • SB 228 Passed Divided Legislature in 2009 • Sponsored by Senator John Morse • Rep. Michael Merrifield Cast the Deciding Vote in House Transportation Committee • Signed by Governor Bill Ritter • Eliminated SB 97-1 Funding (28% of Our Region’s Money) • CDOT Now Says Funding for Remaining 6 Corridors Will Not Be Completed by 2035

  15. Powers Boulevard

  16. Powers Boulevard ● Now known as State Highway 21 ● CDOT is conducting an Environmental Assessment ● Proposed Action calls for 6-lane Freeway with 13 grade-separated interchanges throughout Central Powers Corridor ● Total cost of needed improvements vastly exceeds corridor’s 7th Pot allocation ● Because of SB228, 7th Pot will not be completed by 2035

  17. Recent Powers Improvements Platte / Hwy 24 Interchange Hwy 16 / Mesa Ridge Parkway Connection to I-25 / Fort Carson Woodmen Interchange Given Formal Designation as State Hwy 21 Safety Funding from “Faster” Designated to Address Interchanges Near Memorial North Hospital at Union and at Briargate

  18. Flying Horse Ranch Briargate Parkway to SH 83 Research Parkway to Briargate Parkway Woodmen Interchange Central Powers EA I-25/SH 16 Interchange Where Does Powers Boulevard Extension rank within PPACG’s Regional Priorities? I-25/Northgate Interchange

  19. What’s Next: Regional Priorities ADOPTED by the Board of Directors of the Pikes Peak Area Council of Governments, February 14, 2007. • I-25/SH 16 Interchange at Fort Carson (Powers) • Widening of SH 16 between I-25 and SH 85/87 (Powers) • I-25/Baptist Road Interchange • Powers Boulevard/Stewart Avenue Interchange with Peterson Air Force Base • I-25/US 24-Cimarron Street Interchange Project • I-25 Widening to six lanes from the COSMIX northern terminus to Interquest Parkway • I-25 Widening to six lanes from Interquest Parkway to Monument • Powers Boulevard and North/South Carefree Interchange

  20. Regional Priorities Completed Since 2007 • ✔I-25/SH 16 Interchange at Fort Carson • ✔Widening of SH 16 between I-25 and SH 85/87 (in process) • ✔I-25/Baptist Road Interchange • Funded by Voter-Approved BRRTA Bonds • CDOT Resolution TC-1449 Promises Repayment of $15 Million Construction Cost • Repayment Reduces $412 Million for Strategic Projects in Revised 2035 Plan to $397 Million

  21. Optimistically, 3 Projects by 2025 • Powers Interchange with Peterson AFB • Right of Way purchased with PPRTA funds; intersection designed • Est. $45 Million • I-25 Widening to Interquest Parkway • Ready for Design-Build Contract • Est. $35 Million • I-25/US 24 Interchange Project • Need to buy Right of Way (recommended purchase killed by SB228) • Est. $90 Million • Cost of $170 Million; Leaves $227 Million

  22. 2025 to 2035 • $227 Million left after 3 prior projects • I-25 widening to six lanes from Interquest Parkway to Monument • $153 Million • Powers Boulevard and North/South Carefree interchanges • $76 Million • Deficit of $2 Million for 5 Priorities • All available money used through 2035 • No money for completion of Powers north to I-25 until after 2035

  23. Will Available $ Change? • I hope so, but: • CDOT Received $1.6 Billion in FY 2007 • Gov. Ritter’s Transportation Finance and Implementation Panel recommended additional $1.5 Billion per year incl. “accelerating funding” to complete the 28 Strategic Projects • Instead CDOT’s Budget has been cut to $1 billion • CDOT has gone from 15% of state budget in 1984 to 5% of state budget in 2010 • Change would require ballot issue and/or dramatic changes in state priorities • Could fund Powers extension with PPRTA capital extension or with other local dollars
