CDOT to hold regional meeting to discuss transit plans

The Colorado Department of Transportation’s Division of Transit and Rail is in the process of developing its first-ever comprehensive Statewide Transit Plan, providing a framework for creating an integrated transit system that meets the mobility needs of Coloradans.

Over the next month, CDOT will hold public open houses around the state to present information and gather input on the Statewide Transit Plan.

In addition to the Statewide Transit Plan is the development of Regional Coordinated Transit Plans for the state’s rural areas. These Regional Plans will be integrated into the CDOT Statewide Transit Plan and the Regional Transportation Plans (also underway).

Fourteen meetings will be held in the rural areas of the state.

Archuleta County is included in the Southwest TPR with Dolores, La Plata, Montezuma and San Juan counties.

The open house for this region will be held Wednesday, Oct. 23, 4-6 p.m. at the La Plata County Fairgrounds, 2500 Main Ave., Durango.

If you are unable to make the meeting, view materials and provide comments at the project website: http://coloradotransportationmatters.com/other-cdot-plans/transit/.
