Funding for a program that helps beautify roads across Colorado is ending this month. Congress passed a Transportation Bill earlier this year that scraps funding for the National Scenic Byways program. The program pays for things like signs, pull-outs and other tourist attractions alongside several highways. Aspen Public Radio’s Marci Krivonen reports.
