In 2009 the General Assembly passed Senate Bill 09-108 also known as: Funding Advancements for Surface Transportation and Economic Recovery (FASTER).
This legislation changed the way that transportation funding works in Colorado. SB 09-108 established or modified a number of new operating, funding and oversight mechanisms as well as programs, including:
Monies collected under the FASTER Safety Fund are to be used for construction, reconstruction, or maintenance projects that the Transportation Commission, a county or municipality determine are needed to enhance the safety of a state highway, county road, or city street. The FASTER Bridge Fund monies are to be used to repair or replace poor rated bridges on our highway system.
