To enhance the quality of life and the environment of the citizens of Colorado by creating an integrated transportation system that focuses on safely moving people, goods and information by offering convenient linkages among modal choices.
To provide the best multi-modal transportation system for Colorado that most effectively and safely moves people, goods and information. 
The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) is the cabinet department that plans for, operates, maintains and constructs the state-owned transportation system, including state highways and bridges. The Department’s statutory authority resides within Title 43, Part 1, Colorado Revised Statutes (2015). Article 1 vests the Colorado Transportation Commission with authority over planning, development, and adoption of CDOT’s annual budget.
CDOT is responsible for a state highway system that encompasses more than 9,100 center-lane miles (about 23,000 total lane miles) and includes more than 3,400 bridges. This system each year handles more than 28 billion vehicle miles of travel. Although the Interstate system accounts for only about 10 percent, or 952, of the center-lane miles on the state system, about 40 percent of state-highway travel within Colorado takes place on Interstate highways.
