Description: Roadside resource management is an important aspect of the Colorado Department of Transportation's (CDOT) Shortgrass Prairie Initiative, a programmatic consultation and proactive avoidance, minimization, and mitigation effort covering 36 listed and non-listed species and associated habitats that could be impacted by CDOT’s maintenance and construction activities on Colorado’s eastern plains over the next 20 years. As part of the agreement, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), the State Division of Wildlife, and CDOT have negotiated best management practices to be employed in the right-of-way (ROW) and are developing geographic information systems (GIS) and hard copy resources/maps that can be used by regional environmental and maintenance staff. Field training is being developed as well.

ROW management practices were designed with multiple and sometimes conflicting species needs in mind and with attention to the maintenance and enhancement of ecosystem processes—from protection and care of rare species to control of competitors, promotion of pollinators, protection of riparian areas and wetlands, and maintenance of culvert crossings. This builds upon CDOT’s earlier and ongoing effort to map patches of invasive, noxious weeds in the ROW via geographic positioning systems (GPS), and provide treatment toward their eventual elimination.

CDOT’s Shortgrass Prairie Initiative emerged from a shared vision that public transportation agencies can use funds for environmental mitigation more effectively while making a significant contribution to the recovery of declining ecosystems. The foundation of this initiative is the concept that by anticipating and mitigating for the long term impacts of the transportation system on shortgrass prairie ecosystem components and associated species now, both the costs of implementing future transportation improvements and the threats to the ecosystem can be reduced.
