About SMRP

The SMRP has two functions – maintaining the City’s major pavement network and concrete repairs. Currently, the SMRP maintains more than 8.8 million square yards of pavement, over 800 miles of curb and cutter, 9,000 pedestrian curb ramps and 750 miles of sidewalk. This equates to over 400 centerline miles of public street that must be maintained. This work has earned SMRP the 2023 Best in Colorado Asphalt Pavement Awards Program for sustainability and resurfacing. To learn more about SMRP, visit lovgov.org/SMRP.

Project Funding

The SMRP program is funded through TABOR, the Highway User Tax Fund (HUTF), Funding Advancements for Surface Transportation and Economic Recovery Act (FASTER) of 2009, and through a street maintenance utility fee collected on the City of Loveland Utility Bill. These funds contribute to the City’s overall street maintenance budget to improve large rehabilitation projects like the Taft Avenue resurfacing in 2023.
