  • Public notice: CDOT requests permission to enter private property – The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) has begun emergency repairs on flood-damaged US 34, but in order to allow repairs to move forward, CDOT must obtain signed Permissions to Enter private property along the impacted corridors. Owners with property directly abutted to, or very close to the highway, are urged to please email your name, address and contact information to to allow CDOT access. Alternatively, property owners can call (970) 350-2168 to leave a message that will be returned by a CDOT Right-of-Way representative. In the event property owners are not able to make contact with CDOT and provide a signed Permission to Enter, CDOT and/or its contractors and subcontractors may nevertheless need to enter private property to facilitate the emergency reconstruction efforts. In the event that CDOT enters upon private property, as soon as is reasonable and practical thereafter, CDOT will initiate its customary right-of-way acquisition process to ensure payment of just compensation as required by federal regulations, state statutes, and CDOT procedures.
