Why are the roads so bad in Pueblo West?

Time and increased usage. Pueblo West's population increased 600% since 1990, and road usage has followed suit. Many roads were also built before 1990, many between 1960-1980. Roads begin to degrade after about 20-30 years, and most roads are far older than that. This combination has resulted in the Pueblo West roads department playing a game of perpetual catch-up to maintain roads. This is why the Metro Board voted to return road maintenance to Pueblo County, effective by 2026.
