Local Contractors Invited to CDOT Project Opportunities Event

October 6, 2016 - Southwestern Colorado/CDOT Region 5 - Information to be shared about upcoming projects

The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) along with the Colorado Contractors Association (CCA) and Connect2DOT (CDOT’s partnering agency for small business development), invite area contractors and sub-contractors to an informational session about planned construction work in Region 5. This project opportunities event will be held Tuesday, October 25 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the CDOT Region 5 Maintenance Facility located at 20581 US Hwy 160 W, Durango.

The event is open to all current and prospective contractors and sub-contractors that are interested in finding out how to do business with CDOT and other agencies. CDOT project engineers and representatives from other local agencies, such as La Plata County and the City of Durango, will discuss upcoming construction infrastructure projects planned throughout southwestern Colorado, as well as present specifics on the scopes of work planned for those projects.

“Aside from the project forecast, there will also be presentations about CDOT’s small business programs for disadvantaged or minority owned companies and newly emerging businesses. It’s a great opportunity to learn about the requirements necessary for you as a business owner,” said CDOT Civil Rights Specialist, Kelly Whaley. “We will also give a preview of CDOT’s new processes for bidding projects and present new changes in contract compliance.”

Lunch, sponsored by Connect2DOT, will be served. Registration is required. Please contact Kelly Whaley at 970-385-1405 or [email protected]. You may also register online at: http://tinyurl.com/2017region5.
