Voters to Decide on New Department of Transportation for Denver
Andrew Kenney reports on a decision facing Denver voters this November 5: whether to create a new department of transportation in the city.
The City Council cleared the way for the public vote by approving the ballot measure earlier this week.
"If approved by voters, it would turn the existing Department of Public Works into the Department of Transportation and Infrastructure," according to Kenney.
The new department would be intended to empower the city to expand options for mobility and improve existing transportation infrastructure. The new department, if approved, would be expected to supplement the work of regional transit planning entity, the Regional Transportation District (RTD).
