The Iowa Department of Transportation and Iowa Transportation Commission have been working on the long-range transportation plan for Iowa. The plan provides a framework for how future investments should be made to Iowa’s multimodal transportation system.

A key part of the plan update is collecting public input. In February 2016, public feedback was sought on potential investment categories and strategies, which helped form the overall system vision and the types of investments and strategies to consider. A second survey has been available since Aug. 9 to gather more specific public opinion on what the future of transportation should look like in the state. The survey will remain open until Sept. 30th, 2016.

This survey will build on the results of the input received in February and initial internal analysis of the highway system. Survey questions focus on how people want to live and travel in the future and what they think of particular highway investment strategies.

The survey and information concerning the plan is available online at: www.iowadot.gov/iowainmotion/index.html. Please revisit this website regularly to stay informed throughout the planning process. Input from the survey will be used to help shape the investment strategies included in the plan.
