DOTI is committed to providing attention and resources to the areas, assets and people of the city with the greatest need. Through equitable contracting, equitable investments, and equitable workforce development.
DOTI’s culture revolves around four key principles: (1) Invest in Our People, (2) Operate with Discipline, (3) Use Data to Drive Decisions, and (4) Deliver Results.
The Department of Transportation (DOT) includes a planning, design and build team focused on Denver’s safety, mobility and transportation initiatives for pedestrian, bicycle, transit, freight and vehicles. In 2018, Denver voters passed a charter amendment creating the Department of Transportation and Infrastructure. In approving this measure, voters “better equipped DOTI to address our neighborhoods’ mobility needs, reduce congestion and take on the gaps in our transit system,” as stated by Mayor Hancock in November 2019. DOTI will maintain a focus in equitable transit solutions to advance the Denver Moves Transit plan by improving safety, increasing mobility options, managing and mitigating congestion, and addressing climate change.
This team leverages local and regional stakeholders to develop long-range transportation plans to support the implementation of projects, programs, and services.
