CDOT Turns to Public for Input on Future Projects

By  | 

CDOT and the Mesa County Regional Transportation Office held an open house Monday night to find out what the public thinks should be their top priorities over the next thirty years.

CDOT officials say due to a major lack of funds, road projects all over the state have been put on hold.

Local transportation officials say one of the major problems in the Western Slope is dealing with traffic congestion. They say the I-70 Business Loop and the 22 Road exit ramp are two areas that need extensive work.

"We really want to hear from the public about what they think we can do or what they think we should be doing to improve our roads and improve people's travel," said Ken Simms, of the Mesa County Regional Transportation Office. "It's really to preserve the way of life we enjoy here in the Grand Valley."

The Regional Transportation Office says it will use the input it received from the open house in it's final plan which it will send to CDOT officials in January.
