Revenues from the city of Colorado Springs' 2C roads ballot measure approved by voters in November 2015 continue to rise. For the first three months of the year, the .62 percent sales tax hike generated $7.7 million, about $500,000 more than the same period last year.

The tax is supposed to raise $50 million per year for five years, but during 2016 and 2017, it brought in a total of $102.3 million.

The city said in a release that during the first quarter of 2018, nearly 25,000 linear feet of curb and gutter were replaced, along with nearly 50,000 square feet of sidewalks.

The city completed 47 percent of planned streets in its first two years. The goal is to apply new asphalt to 1,000 lane miles of roads during the five-year program.
