Citizen Appreciates Tire Change Help

John Furcean of the Denver area called Denver Maintenance Section 8 to report that when he was traveling eastbound on SH 58 not far from Golden on Sunday, May 6, and had a flat tire, he was helped by two CDOT employees.

He reported that the time was between 10 and 11 p.m. and it was raining.  He reported that he didn't have anything to change the tire with.  "Your employees, John Thompson and Thomas Siemek, had flashlights and a lug wrench and they helped me change the tire," he said.  He added that he drives an older model Volkswagen and had never needed to change a tire on it before.

"I'm very grateful for the help they provided," he concluded.

Thompson and Siemek both work with Patrol 91 on the night crew for Denver Maintenance Section 8, Region 6.
