Discrimination Complaints

Federal law prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, age, sex, or disability in any CDOT program or activity. This prohibition applies to all branches of CDOT, agencies and organizations that receive money from CDOT, such as contractors, consultants, local agencies and anyone else who acts on CDOT’s behalf.

Statement of Web Accessibility

The State of Colorado is committed to providing equitable access to our services to all Coloradans. Our ongoing accessibility effort works towards being in line with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) version 2.2, levels A and AA criteria, per the State of Colorado Technical Standard TS-OEA-002 and House Bill 21-1110. These guidelines not only help make web content accessible to users with sensory, cognitive and mobility disabilities but ultimately to all users, regardless of ability.

This website is just part of a meaningful change in making all State of Colorado services inclusive and accessible. We welcome comments on how to improve this website’s accessibility for users with disabilities and for requests for accommodations to any State of Colorado services. We welcome your feedback about the accessibility of CDOT online services. For accessibility concerns on a Colorado Department of Transportation website or application, please visit our Contact Us page or submit a request with our Customer Service team for assistance.

Website Validation

We have used XHTML 1.0 and CSS that conforms to specification, as laid out by the W3C because we believe that usability and accessibility must have a solid foundation. If anything on this web site does not validate correctly, please contact the Site Administration, and not the Plone Team.

We have also endeavored to achieve AA accessibility as measured against Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.2). We are aware however, that a number of the checkpoints of the WCAG are subjective — and although we are sure that we have met them squarely, there may be instances where interpretation may vary.

About Plone

This site uses the Open Source Content Management System Plone and has been designed to be completely accessible and usable, working in accordance with WCAG 2.2. If there is anything on this site — accessibility or validation related — that is not according to the standard, please contact CDOT via the Contact Us page, and not the Plone Team.
