COLORADO SPRINGS • Colorado is seeking $25 million in federal funds for a series of projects that would make it easier and safer to get to military posts in the Colorado Springs area, state officials said Wednesday.

The grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation would help foot the roughly $130 million bill for improvements on Colorado 94, South Academy Boulevard, Interstate 25 and an entrance road to Fort Carson, Gov. Jared Polis told local military and community leaders during a meeting at the Pikes Peak Area Council of Governments’ 7th Street headquarters.

The majority of the money, $84 million, is expected to be spent on I-25 improvements.
