BERTHOUD, Colo. (KDVR) — The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) announced Northeast Colorado will receive nearly $33 million in federal stimulus money for highway projects.

Drivers headed to Denver will benefit from the $8 million repaving of Interstate 76 in western Morgan County.

Other large projects are the repaving of US 385 in Phillips County, and the Berthoud mobility hub at I-25 and Highway 56.

The hub will support bus service between Fort Collins and Denver.

Here is the full list of projects from CDOT:

NE CO Suballocation to North Front Range Metropolitan Planning Org. $4 million The federal formula specifies that $4 million of the funds be spent within the geographic parameters of the North Front Range Metropolitan Planning Organization (NFRMPO) area.  CDOT will suballocate these dollars to NFRMPO for expenditure by local governments, and request quick action to maximize stimulus benefits.
