Colorado's Transportation System

Transportation & Motor Vehicles

Colorado's transportation system is primarily managed by the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT).  Cities, counties, transit and transportation authorities, and the Public Utilities Commission have specific authority as well.  The Transportation Commission provides direction to CDOT, a role authorized by the General Assembly in state law.  This issue brief describes how this system is planned and maintained by state and local governments with federal, state, and local funding.

The effective date for bills enacted without a safety clause is August 7, 2024, if the General Assembly adjourns sine die on May 8, 2024, unless otherwise specified. Details
