Episode 23: Improving your commute

CDOT’s Michelle Puellen joins Pueblo’s Podcast once again to talk about a whole slew of projects. Mainly the Highway 50 & Purcell interchange, but she also discusses the Gap Project between Monument and Castle Rock and the stretch of I-25 from South Academy to Fountain. Puellen said that stretch is a key corridor for commuters and inter-regional travel, as well as critical defense access and haul route for military personnel and equipment travelling between Peterson Air Force Base and Fort Carson. 

Michelle also reminds us how to be safe while driving and tips to prep your car for the winter. Good advice just in time!

She also discusses CDOT’s new road condition and travel planner app. The new COtrip Planner mobile app was designed to meet the growing trend of information on mobile and tablet devices for the traveling public. The COtrip Planner app provides statewide, real-time traffic information, and works on smartphones and tablets that operate on iOS and Android platforms. Download the app in the Apple Store or Google Play Store.
