The purpose of this study is to provide recommendations relative to the location and construction needs for highway maintenance facilities within the state of Iowa. These recommendations were to be developed with consideration being given to the public's expectations and priorities for highway maintenance services. As a part of the study effort, a review was made of the methods used by other states to deliver highway maintenance services. To accomplish the study, Wilbur Smith Associates undertook a series of tasks. These efforts included gathering of data and information to characterize the various maintenance programs and the delivery of maintenance and operations services by the Department. We researched the delivery of highway maintenance services in other states. Interviews with Iowa DOT maintenance personnel were accomplished. A schedule of public hearings was developed and ten hearings were held. All the information was integrated and various analyses were made. From these analyses we drew conclusions and developed recommendations.
