About

Counties in Northwestern Colorado were the focus of this event hosted by The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT). Hosts Transportation Commissioner Kathy Connell and CDOT Regional Transportation Director Dave Eller provided updates on recent and upcoming projects in the area, key initiatives for the region and funding. Commissioner Connell noted CDOT is thinking innovatively about key issues such as wildlife mitigation and economic development, including the I-70 Mountain Express Lane and newly installed wildlife overpasses on SH 9. CDOT faces a number of significant funding challenges for the present and the future in part due to a decline in purchasing power, increases in population, and vehicle fuel efficiency.
