The Iowa Department of Transportation is in the process of developing rail and freight plans designed to improve the safety and efficiency of Iowa’s transportation system and make the state a better place to live, work, and travel. All citizens are owners of Iowa’s transportation system. As an owner, we need your input to identify and evaluate Iowa’s existing systems, as well as plan for rail and freight needs over the next 25 years.
The rail and freight plans are closely related and have several intertwining activities In developing the plans, there is a natural overlap of information, data, and analysis and developing the two plans in tandem saves taxpayer dollars.
If you are interested in the future of freight and rail transportation, please participate in a brief survey. Your anonymous answers will help us as we continue developing both the state rail and freight plans. Please share the survey link with others who are interested in the future of rail and freight movement in Iowa.
