The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) officially launched a Facebook page last week to help improve customer service and communications by providing CDOT news and information and allowing for two-way communication with citizens. You can find CDOT’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/coloradodot.
“We have been utilizing our website, Twitter and email/text message alerts to communicate road and traveler information, as well as other news to motorists,” said CDOT Executive Director Don Hunt. “While these tools are all very successful, we believe Facebook will provide another avenue for citizens to communicate with us directly and receive critical information about our transportation system and programs statewide.”
CDOT will post information about construction projects and programs, as well as events and photos. In addition, there is a feed from CDOT’s Twitter account that provides updates on road and travel conditions, as well as other CDOT news.
Other resources for CDOT information include www.coloradodot.info, where you can also sign up for free e-mail and text message alerts; www.cotrip.org or 511 for road and weather conditions; and www.twitter.com/coloradodot.
