How are Pueblo West roads currently funded?

The Pueblo West Metro District received $1.36 million in 'Highway User Tax Fund' funding from Pueblo County in 2021. This funding makes up roughly two-thirds of the Metro District roads budget and, by law, can only be used to maintain the 345 miles of roads that meet County standards. The remaining 1/3 of the roads budget is used in part to maintain about 35 miles of road (mostly dirt roads) that have not been constructed up to County standards. The remaining 20 miles of roads have not yet been constructed, and are to be constructed by future development in those areas to County standards.
