Letter: Road money needed

Think congestion on I-70 is getting worse? This state will have 1 million more residents in the next seven years.

Congress hasn’t raised the gas tax since 1992. The zealots in the Colorado Legislature haven’t raised the state’s gas tax since 1992.

Does any rational citizen believe that this state’s growing congestion in 2016 can be solved with 1992 money?
