The Iowa DOT is studying Interstate 80 in Iowa from the Illinois to Nebraska borders in an effort to increase mobility across the interstate system. This study will help the department make systematic decisions. It is critical to identify important resources within the corridor early in the process to allow time to develop potential solutions that avoid, minimize, or mitigate impacts to these resources.
Public participation is an important component of this process as it gives an opportunity for interested individuals to help identify these resources, as well as share what is important to them. It also serves as an opportunity for the Iowa DOT to keep the public informed and provide feedback on potential improvement strategies as they are refined. The comments and opinions submitted will be used to help make informed decisions throughout the process.
