Colorado Department of Transportation will get $15 million from the U.S. Department of Transportation to improve I-25 between Fort Collins and Loveland, Sen. Michael Bennet announced Monday.

This map from the Coloradoan shows which part of the interstate will get a tolled express lane in each direction for 14 miles:

The Coloradoan reports that the additional $15 million means that CDOT should be able to break ground next fall. The grant fills a gap in the project’s funding, officials said. The rest of the money comes from a variety of state and federal sources.
