Panel approves $24 million for Roaring Fork rapid transit

The U.S. House Appropriations Committee approved $24 million for Bus Rapid Transit improvements in the Roaring Fork Valley between Glenwood Springs and Aspen, U.S. Rep. John Salazar, D-Colo., said Friday.

The funding for the Roaring Fork Transit Authority now awaits consideration by the full House.

The funds would be combined with $15 million in local funding to provide safer, more frequent and attractive transit services along Colorado Highway 82, which a 2003 study found to be the most congested rural highway in the state.

Salazar, an Appropriations Committee member, said the project would create 231 construction and other jobs over a two-year period, plus 72 jobs related to ongoing operations.
