    • Abstract:
      The Iowa Transportation Commission (Commission) and the Iowa Department of Transportation (Iowa DOT) develop Iowa’s Five Year Highway Program to inform Iowans of planned investments in our state’s primary highway system. This brochure summarizes the 2012-2016 Iowa Highway Program (Program) and provides information about long-term highway programming issues, through the year 2020. The Program is typically updated and approved each year in June. The Program documents the planned investments of highway right of way and construction. It was developed to achieve several objectives. The primary highway programming objective is the maintenance and preservation of Iowa’s existing highway system, and its operational and safety features. This includes interstate and non-interstate pavement rehabilitation or replacement, bridge rehabilitation or replacement, and safety enhancements. There are also significant investments to modernize three urban interstate systems, on I-29 in Sioux City, I-29/80/480 in Council Bluffs, and I-74 in Bettendorf/Davenport. Another highway programming objective is to maintain the scheduled completion of capacity and economic development projects. Projects scheduled to be completed within the previous Program continue on their current schedule. However, due to a reduction in projected federal revenue, the Commission has delayed by one year the initiation of construction of all multiyear, non-interstate capacity and economic development projects that cannot be completed within this Program. These projects are U.S. 20 in Woodbury County, U.S. 30 in Benton County, U.S. 61 in Louisa County, and Iowa 100 in Linn County.
