Coloradoans Invited to Help Chart State’s Transportation Future
DENVER – The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) is asking citizens to get involved in planning the future of the state’s transportation system.
With the unveiling of the Statewide Plan website at www.
CDOT is inviting the public to play a major role developing the
Statewide Transportation Plan (SWP), set for release in mid-2014.
“We really want to hear from people throughout Colorado because this plan guides us on how limited dollars will be invested in the transportation system and how projects will be selected and scheduled in the future,” said CDOT Executive Director Don Hunt. “Public participation is crucial for its development since it’ll reflect the priorities and needs of our citizens.”
The website serves as a central point of contact for CDOT, its planning partners and the public at large.
Website visitors will discover what opportunities and challenges are facing Colorado’s transportation system. It allows the public to provide comments and take on-line surveys and examine the financial practices and organizational policies used by CDOT to stretch resources and meet statewide needs. In addition, local planning processes, upcoming events and data on the state’s economy, environment and transportation system is available on the site.
Coloradans are encouraged to check the website often to learn about new developments and provide input on the direction of the SWP.
