GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KJCT)-- Ballot measure 2A asked folks to authorize bonds and increase city debt by 70 million to focus on road and infrastructure improvements.
It would expand 24 Road from three lanes of traffic to five lanes, as well as focusing on improving roads on the north end of town.
That's not the only part of the bond either. With the TABOR override, the money that would have been refunded actually goes towards paying off the bond that was used for the Riverside Parkway. The second part asked voters if they can continue to use the TABOR override to pay off the bonds for measure 2A's projects as well.
With the go-ahead on these projects, that does mean we could see more construction throughout the city.
The measure claims to have no extra taxes added on to it-- it'll simply reallocate money.
Construction is estimated to start in 2021.
