Roadway/Transportation – Capital Improvement Projects (CIP)

Capital Improvement Projects (CIP) are projects funded by the County, or through the use of grant funding. They include the replacement or construction of bridges/culverts, paving and widening of existing roadways and construction of new regional roadway arterials. Paving of existing local residential gravel roads (in old subdivisions where the roads were never built by the developer, or were built but were never accepted by the County for maintenance) are accomplished through the use of Local Improvement Districts administered through the Department of Public Works Engineering.  CIP staff functions with regard to the implementation of Capital Improvement Projects include: surveying, developing conceptual alignment, studies, preliminary and final design, preparation of construction plans and specifications, acquisition of right-of-way, bidding of work and management of construction activities.

Currently, there is no cost to the County to utilize this system; however, enhanced membership would allow the County the opportunity to accept electronic bid and proposal responses.

I-25 Gap Coalition

Consistent with their six goals for the County, the Board of Douglas County Commissioners has committed $250,000 in the County’s 2017 budget to support a solution to the critical expansion needs of I-25 from C-470 (Douglas County) to Monument (El Paso County).  For more information visit I-25 Gap Coalition
