CONTRIBUTED BY CDOT
The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) will seek input on transportation issues of importance to residents in Arapahoe, Denver, Douglas and Jefferson counties during a telephone town hall on Thursday, Aug. 22, at 6:30 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 6:30 p.m. on Aug. 22, residents with landlines will be called through an automated system and invited to take part in the telephone town hall. 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 CDOTMETRO 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: Shannon Gifford, CDOT Transportation Commissioner; Don Stanton, CDOT Transportation Commissioner; and Paul Jesaitis, Regional Transportation Director for CDOT Region 1. 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.

WHOLE SYSTEM. WHOLE SAFETY.
To heighten safety awareness, CDOT recently announced its Whole System — Whole Safety initiative. This project takes a systematic statewide approach to safety combining the benefits of CDOT’s programs that address driving behaviors, our built environment and the organization’s operations. The goal is to improve the safety of Colorado’s transportation network by reducing the rate and severity of crashes and improving the safety of all transportation modes. The program has one simple mission—to get everyone home safely.
