DENVER — Tired of traffic every day? Wish you had a train to Denver? Do you despise a bumpy stretch of road? If you answered yes to any of those questions, the Colorado Department of Transportation wants to hear from you, and hear your ideas about how to fix it.

CDOT is asking for your input on which projects and priorities the state should be looking to tackle over the next 10 years. Colorado residents can take the survey, which asks them to rank their transportation priorities and use an interactive map to drop pins on problem areas around the state.

The survey will only be active until Sept. 3, and transportation officials say it has received more than 6,900 responses so far. CDOT has also gathered feedback from thousands more through telephone town halls and in-person events across the state since May. CDOT wants to see more responses to get a more complete picture of transportation priorities and challenges that matter to the people living here.

“With two weeks remaining to provide input, we’re encouraging all Coloradans to make their voice heard,” said CDOT Executive Director Shoshana Lew in a news release. “I hope anyone who uses our transportation system takes this opportunity to chat with us in-person at an event, talk with us on the phone during a telephone town hall, or take the online survey. Your voice will help direct how CDOT invests its funds.”

So far, Coloradans have identified “growth and congestion,” “road condition and safety” and a “lack of travel options,” as primary concerns.
