Denver upgrades transportation system with $430 million in funding

Denver voters have decided to approve $937 million in bond sales to support infrastructure projects for their city, with nearly half of that money flowing into transportation and mobility.

With a rapidly growing population, no other issue generates more discussion at Denver community meetings. In the vote, 75 percent chose to do something about traffic congestion, bicycle and pedestrian upgrades, and more.
