Coffee @ CDOT

On the first Tuesday of every month CDOT will host an informational coffee with changing discussion topics. The intent of these meetings is to foster communication between CDOT environmental staff and consultants working on (or potentially working on) CDOT projects. It is a way for CDOT to give updates on policies, regulations, processes, issues, statutes, work plans, etc. Participants should bring discussion items related to the topic. Coffee and snacks will be supplied by members of the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC).Coffee Cup


Date:         1st Tuesday of each month, Sept 2017-June 2018

Time:         8:30-10:00 unless stated otherwise
