CDOT Extending Public Comment Period

Pollution

The Colorado Department of Transportation has decided to extend public comment for people to provide feedback on the Greenhouse Gas Pollution Reduction Planning Standard. This standard could have major implications for multimodal access in our state.

CDOT has proposed a new standard to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the transportation sector and provide more travel options.

Learn more about the proposed standard here.

The public comment period has been extended to Nov. 18.

Written comments can be submitted to dot_rules@state.co.us by noon.
