CDOT staff recognized for work on USA Pro Challenge

Colorado Department of Transportation Director Don Hunt lauded CDOT staff for their behind-the-scenes work on the USA Pro Challenge.

The race required collaboration with the Colorado State Patrol to review and establish the route, plan for traffic control, detours and electronic sign messaging, right of way use policies, coordination with road construction and maintenance projects, media and public information projects and security.

Hunt thanked the dozens of CDOT maintenance staff who helped race-day operations run smoothly. He also specifically honored seven staffers: Betsy Jacobsen, CDOT bicycle and pedestrian coordinator, Mike Goolsby, Grand Junction maintenance superintendent, Clark Roberts, traffic engineer, Scott Hoftiezer, engineer, Ashley Mohr and Bob Wilson, communications, and Chris Meyer, safety and traffic engineering.

We’re thrilled to see so many people out enjoying (and often rediscovering the joy of) riding a bike right now, and we’re asking ALL bicyclists to do their part to prevent the spread of #covid19 by wearing a mask or other face covering when out for a ride. Doing so keeps you, your loved ones, those around you, and all Coloradans safer while helping reduce stress on our medical system. If you still need a mask, click the link in our bio to pre-order one now and support our advocacy work! Thanks so much to everyone who has already purchased, and to @primalwear for supporting our efforts over the years. Ride on.

  • Tonight the #BicycleColorado team celebrated Stacey, our outgoing Development Director, with a virtual happy hour. Stacey has been an absolute rockstar for BC. We’re sad to see her leave, but thrilled for her as she heads out on a new adventure (hopefully in the #BikeAdvocacy space!) in North Carolina. Please join us in wishing her well!
