Citizen Advocate

CDOT's citizen advocate strives to remedy concerns voiced by members of the traveling public by coordinating communication among citizens and state agencies.

Established in 1993 through Executive Order D 0010 93, the Governor’s Advocate Corps —renamed the Citizen Advocate Corp in 2003—assists constituents with resolving state government issues.

CDOT's citizen advocate reviews each concern, and forwards it to the appropriate division within CDOT for follow up and resolution. Contact can be made to the citizen advocate by email, telephone, fax or postal mail.

Before contacting the advocate:
  • You may use CDOT's customer service portal to find answers to your questions or address your concerns.
  • Please determine whether your concern, problem or complaint is within the jurisdiction of CDOT. If your complaint is regarding a local or federal government issue, it cannot be resolved through the CDOT advocate. CDOT does not have jurisdiction over the cities, counties, railroads, or E-470 and Northwest Parkway.
