COLORADO SPRINGS — Residents can “talk transportation” with state officials at a town hall from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Wednesday.

The meeting will be at the Sand Creek Library, 1821 S. Academy Blvd.

The Colorado Department of Transportation is holding a statewide series of meetings so Coloradans can interact with their local transportation commissioners, talk to CDOT staff and learn about projects in their region, says a CDOT news release.

Residents also can call in to CDOT’s “telephone town hall” for southeast Colorado at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 17. CDOT will call area residents at random. To participate, call 1-877-229-8493 and enter the PIN number 112034.

Editor’s Note: A previous version of this story inaccurately stated the number for the telephone town hall. The story has been revised to correct the error.
