SPRING 2024┃25 SPRING 2024┃7 INDUSTRY NEWS 2024 Local Agency Pavement Condition and Funding Summary Data Available CAPA has published the 2024 Local Agency Summary Pavement Condition Report and it is available to download from the CAPA website. Across the state there are 88,000 lane miles of asphalt and local agencies are responsible for funding and maintaining 74% of that network (over 65,000 lane miles). Over one hundred agencies have now provided street funding and condition data in the 2024 edition. Agency feedback has been very responsive “Thanks for taking the time to compile all of this information, it is very useful”…“Thanks for sharing other agencies responses so we can see where we are”…“Thank you for continuing to put this together, it is a great tool to share with our Elected Officials”. Of the 20 agencies that reported both 2023 and 2024 data, 68% reported the same or an increase in their streets budget (+$13.3M) and 32% reported a decrease (-$16.7M). Budget data also indicates that Capital Improvement Project spending is down 26%%, Mill & Overlay programs have stayed flat and Maintenance Programs have slightly increased. Agencies are reporting that over $458M has been budgeted for 2024 Annual Street Improvement Programs with an additional $296M in Capital Projects…that’s a total of over $755M being spent by Local Agencies this year on streets and infrastructure across Colorado.
