DENVER (AP) -- State officials are hoping private groups can take over maintenance of some highways because Colorado does not have the money.
Transportation director Don Hunt oversees more than 9,000 miles of roadway that need billions of dollars in repairs.
Potential projects include Interstate-25 from Denver to Fort Collins and the I-70 mountain corridor.
According to the Denver Post, the department currently operates with a $1.2 billion budget with about $800 million designated for everyday maintenance of roads and some of their work can be contracted out.
