CDOT hosting telephone town hall Aug. 14 to discuss transportation in North Front Range and Northeast Colorado

August 12, 2019 - Northeastern Colorado

GREELEY — The Colorado Department of Transportation will seek input on transportation issues of importance to residents in the North Front Range and Northeast Colorado during a telephone town hall on Wednesday, Aug. 14, 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. 14, an automated system will randomly call landlines of the following counties, inviting residents to participate in the conversation: Cheyenne, Elbert, Kit Carson, Larimer, Lincoln, Logan, Morgan, Phillips, Sedgwick, Washington, Weld and Yuma. 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 CDOTNE 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: Gary Beedy, CDOT Transportation Commissioner; Kathleen Bracke, CDOT Transportation Commissioner; and Heather Paddock, Regional Transportation Director for CDOT Region 4. 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.
