Moving Mountains: Colorado DOT Selects Aurigo
Masterworks to RAMP Up Its Program, Project, and Cash Management Processes
To many, Colorado, America’s eighth largest state, brings to mind snow-covered mountains, desert lands, rivers, and hiking among its many popular tourist destinations. Behind the scenes, Colorado Department of Transportation manages and maintains 23,000 total lane miles of highway; 760 geo hazard sites; 35 mountain underpasses; 3,447 bridges, and snow and ice operations such as plowing and monitoring of avalanche paths. With such large geographic diversity across a populous state (over 5 million), Colorado DOT is split up into five urban areas: Denver Regional Council of Governments, North Front Range, Pikes Peak Area Council lof Governments, and Grand Valley. The total capital spend over a five-year span (2012 to 2017) is $8.7 billion.
