About 2C

The 2C Road Improvement is a voter-approved sales tax, serving as the main source for rebuilding and improving the condition of our existing roadway infrastructure in Colorado Springs.

The sales tax revenues apply only to roads and adjacent concrete. Approximately half of those revenues are dedicated to sidewalks, curbs and gutters. This concrete work protects streets and enhances accessibility.

Since the 2C program started in 2016, the number of our roads in “good” condition has nearly doubled and the number of citizen pothole complaints have gone down by more than 50%.

2C has allowed the City to repave more than 1,600 lane miles, install more than 9,400 new and retrofitted pedestrian ramps, and replace almost 306 miles of curb and gutter and 3.6 million square feet of sidewalk.
