The Colorado Department of Transportation is officially on the road to adding an Express Lane in each direction on I-25 from Johnstown to Fort Collins starting later this year.
A $248 million contract with Kraemer/IHC has been approved for the project which will increase capacity by adding an Express Lane in both directions of I-25, replace aging bridges and widen others, create new pedestrian and bicycle access under I-25 at Kendall Parkway, and connect the Cache la Poudre River Regional Trail under I-25.
Kraemer/IHC was the preferred contractor for the project when bids were opened in November. Negotiations on the final contract continued and were finalized at the end of December.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
2017 Property tax statements have been mailed
Larimer County Treasurer Irene Josey said today this year’s property tax statements were mailed this week.
About 155,550 tax notices have been mailed, which includes 144,544 real property; 5,162 personal property; 5,674 mobile home, and 176 state-assessed tax bills. Josey also said payment of these taxes will generate over $506 million for taxing authorities throughout Larimer County, $55.6 million more from the 2016 payable in 2017 collection process.
The 2017 tax statements are for the taxable year 2017, and became due January 1, 2018. However, in accordance with Colorado Revised Statutes, the taxpayer has the option of paying the full amount of taxes in a single payment no later than April 30, 2018. Tax payments can also be made in two equal installments. The first installment must be paid no later than Wednesday, February 28, 2018, and the second installment to be paid no later than June 15, 2018. Taxpayers using the half-payment option are reminded to file their 2nd half-payment coupon in a convenient place for June remittance, as a second half notice will not be mailed.
Property taxes can be paid online by credit/debit card or electronic check. The convenience fee charged for those payments is explained at www.larimer.org/treasurer.
Please mail payments to Larimer County Treasurer, P.O. Box 2336, Fort Collins, CO 80522. To ensure proper credit, please reference your schedule number on your check.
Also, please consider signing up for future electronic tax statements by following directions on your current tax statement when received.
Josey reminds all taxpayers that failure to receive a tax bill does not exempt the taxpayer from his or her obligation to pay taxes and encourages any property owners that have not received a tax notice by January 31st, to call
