(Noon Online Meeting) - TAMARA ROLLISON

Latest from CDOT

Learn about the latest transportation projects under way and what's to come!

Tamara Rollison is the communications manager for CDOT's Denver metro region. Her position includes a wide range of duties, including keeping the public informed of the region's transportation program and impacts. Tamara started her career in broadcast journalism. She made the transition from the newsroom to the DOT world in the late 1990's. She was with the Virginia Department of Transportation, serving various roles, including director of communications. She also worked in the private sector in strategic communications, change management, and launching marketing programs for major transportation initiatives. Nearly five years ago, Tamara was ready for change following the most difficult life-changer of all, the death of her 19-year-old son Logan. After he died in a car crash in 2016, Tamara started a new life and moved to what she calls her second home, Colorado, to be closer to her brother and niece and the mountains, from which she draws strength. If she could sum it all up, Tamara hopes to make a positive difference in her time with CDOT and serving the great state of Colorado. 

Tamara will provide a brief overview of  CDOT's Region 1 (covers the Denver Metro region and part of the I-70 Mountain Corridor), a snapshot of their maintenance program, an update on major projects under way and improvements in the pipeline.  She will also cover how the Express Lane system is evolving, key challenges and an overview of funding.
