Property Information 

For additional information about this property and the bidding process visit CDOT’s Business Center webpage: 

CDOT occasionally disposes of excess property when a property is not needed. Before CDOT can sell excess real estate, it must be reviewed by the various departments within the agency to determine if there is any need for the property. If it is determined that there is no future need for the property, an appraisal is done to determine its estimated fair market value. The property is then put up for auction via sealed bid.
