The Southern Colorado Clean Cities Coalition (SC4) is a neutral consult for organizations wanting to learn more about alternative fuels and petroleum reduction strategies for their vehicle fleets. Since 1994, the SC4 has been working locally to displace petroleum in the transportation sector in order to increase our energy security, support our domestic economy, and improve air quality for the benefit of public health and the environment. The SC4 highlights the connection between vehicle emissions and public health:

FAST Act, Alternative Fuel Corridor Designations Announced

The Federal Highway Administration announced the establishment of a national alternative fuel and charging infrastructure highway corridor network.  FHWA intends to support the expansion of this national network through a process that:

  • provides the initial opportunity for a formal corridor designation now and in the future on a rolling basis, without a cap on the number of corridors;
  • ensures that corridor designations are selected based on criteria that promote the “build out” of a national network;
  • develops national signage and branding to help catalyze applicant and public interest;
  • encourages multi-state and regional cooperation and collaboration; and,
  • brings together a consortium of stakeholders including state agencies, utilities, alternative fuel providers, and car manufacturers to promote and advance alternative fuel corridor designations in conjunction with the Department of Energy.
  • Maps, resources, and information can be found here
