*DENVER* – The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) has launched a
new website in coordination with the development of the 2040 Statewide
Transportation Plan which identifies future needs for Colorado’s
transportation system and establishes a transportation vision for the
state. The website,, is designed
to engage Coloradoans to help shape the future of our transportation system.

“The development of a successful SWP relies heavily on the participation of
not only our planning partners across the state, but the general public as
well,” said Michelle Scheuerman, CDOT Planning Section Manager. “This
website will make it easy for people to share their input so that we can
develop a plan that reflects the priorities and needs of all Coloradans.”

What is the SWPThe Colorado Department of Transportation
transportation system and provide their own perspectives through
commenting, uploading photos, or attending in-person meetings. At the same
time, users will gain an understanding of the financial practices and
organizational policies that CDOT has adopted to stretch resources and meet
statewide needs. Visitors to the site may also access a wealth of
information on local planning processes, upcoming meetings and events, and
geospatial data on the state’s economy, environment, and transportation
system that can help inform their active participation in the process.

The website will serve as a central point of contact for CDOT, its planning
partners, and the public at large as the plan develops between now and the
spring of 2014. Check back often to learn about new developments and
provide your input on the direction of the plan as additional interactive
multimedia features are added along the way. Your input is critical in
developing Colorado’s transportation vision for the future!
