2009 Road Improvement Bond
On March 10, 2009, voters approved $25 million of general obligation bonds to be issued for road design, construction, repair and improvements. 

Initially, the city was planning on using bond funding for Unser Boulevard widening, Paseo del Volcan extension, Northern Boulevard widening, 30th Street paving design, Western Hills Drive reconstruction, Nicklaus Drive reconstruction and pavement preservation on roads throughout the city. 

However, due to a bond premium ($500,000), federal American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funding received for the Paseo del Volcan extension, and project bids coming in lower than original cost estimates, the city has been able to use bond funding for more road-related projects than originally anticipated. 

As additional work/projects are performed with road bond funds, content on this Web page will be updated.

Bond funding has or will be used for the following:

New Roads
  • Paseo del Volcan extension (Iris Road to U.S. 550) (partial funding; majority federal funding).

  • Colorado Mountain Road (Idalia Road to Gazelle Road paved with sidewalks)
