DENVER — A fee on Colorado vehicle registrations is allowing the state to step up repairs for dangerous bridges across the state.

The Colorado Department of Transportation said Tuesday that the state has replaced 53 bridges, while another 22 are under construction and 33 are in the design phase as of the end of July.

The additional funds come from a program called FASTER, which stands for Funding Advancement for Surface Transportation and Economic Recovery.

According to the Denver Post (http://tinyurl.com/mn85r2h ), the Colorado Legislature in 2009 approved the Colorado Bridge Enterprise, which provides about $100 million a year for bridge repair and replacement.
