CDOT hosting telephone town hall Aug. 15 to discuss transportation in Intermountain and Northwest Colorado

RBC | The Colorado Department of Transportation will seek input on transportation issues of importance to residents in the Intermountain and Northwest regions of Colorado during a telephone town hall on Thursday, Aug. 15, at 7 p.m. The conversation is part of the agency’s Your Transportation Plan initiative that began earlier this summer to gather public feedback on transportation needs and improvements throughout Colorado.

Beginning at 7 p.m. on Aug. 15, an automated system will randomly call landlines of the following counties, inviting residents to participate in the conversation: Delta, Eagle, Garfield, Grand, Gunnison, Hinsdale, Jackson, Lake, Mesa, Moffat, Pitkin, Rio Blanco, Routt and Summit. Residents who have a cell phone or do not receive a call can dial 855-710-6230 to participate.

A text-to-register feature is also available for cell phones. Residents can text CDOTNW to 828282 to receive a call to their cell phone when the telephone town hall begins. Residents can also listen live online by visiting Vekeo.com/coloradodot.

Panelists on the call will include: Kathy Hall, CDOT Transportation Commissioner; Heather Sloop, Statewide Transportation Advisory Committee representative for Northwest Colorado; and Michael Goolsby, Regional Transportation Director for  CDOT Region 3. During the call, participants will have an opportunity to take part in live polling, ask a question, and share their thoughts about transportation needs and ideas for their area. The feedback gathered during this call will help guide the development of Colorado’s next transportation plan, which includes a 10-year pipeline of projects statewide.
