The Colorado Department of Transportation began holding telephone "town hall" type meetings on June 5th and on Monday, June 12th, it's the Western Slope's turn.

Residents will be called at random to be invited to the conference type call with CDOT officials and the transportation commissioner to discuss how the area's needs are being met. Attendees will be able to discuss their views on the area, and find out about upcoming projects, funding and any new initiatives being planned. The Western Slope call will cover the following counties:

Delta, Eagle, Garfield, Grand, Gunnison, Hendale, Jackson Lake, Mesa, Moffit, Montrose, Pitkin, Rio Blanco, Routt and Summit.

What are some of the needs this area should have addressed? Is the construction going on currently being completed satisfactorily? How has the impact of the construction impacted your life? Are there areas of need that you would like to see addressed?These are a few of the questions they will be asking at the town hall meeting, but what questions do you have? The most often asked questions is why isn't this area or that area being addressed? Here is your opportunity to make those areas that may have been overlooked relevant. These calls are going on across the state and will not be repeated, so make sure you have your questions ready and if not called by them, call in!

Should you not receive one of these calls, but would like to join the discussion, CDOT has arranged a call in number. The meeting for the Western Slope will commence at 7 P.M. and if you wish to call in, the number is:
