Division of Public Works, Streets & Roads
As of Jan. 1, 2023, Pueblo County government is now responsible for the maintenance of all roads in the Pueblo West Metropolitan District. No new road maintenance or repair requests will be taken by the Pueblo West Metro District.
To make new roads maintenance requests, contact the Pueblo County Streets & Bridges department at 719-583-6040 or visit the Pueblo County Public Works website to learn more.
Why the change?
- The collection of a temporary 1% sales tax, passed through from the Pueblo West Metropolitan District to Pueblo County, to fund Pueblo West road maintenance under Pueblo County government’s management. The tax will sunset on Dec. 31, 2032.
- Pueblo County to assume the responsibility for Pueblo West road maintenance on Jan. 1, 2023.
- A maximum annual collection of $5 million.
- The creation of an independent oversight committee (link) to ensure that tax funds are spent exclusively on Pueblo West roads, associated drainage and facilities.
