CDOT Executive Director Shailen Bhatt Stepping Down

09-Nov-2017 to 30-Nov-2017

Shaileen Bhatt will leave his role as Executive Director at CDOT in December. Gov. John Hickenlooper made the announcement last month and praised the innovation that Shailen brought to our state's highway system. Over the past two years, Shailen oversaw the opening of the U.S. 36 and I-25 express lanes, the Bustang launch, and created the RoadX program, which focuses on smart technologies like self-driving cars, connected vehicles, and more.

Shailen leaves to become the President and CEO of the Intelligent Transportation Society of America, a Washington, D.C.- based organization focused on developing and deploying intelligent transportation systems across the United States. Mike Lewis, CDOT's Deputy Executive Director and Chief Operating Officer, will serve as interim Executive Director.
