This document describes planned investments in Iowa’s multimodal transportation system including aviation, transit, railroads, trails, and highways. This five-year program documents $3.2 billion of highway and bridge construction projects on the primary road system using federal and state funding. Of that funding, a little over $500 million is available due to the passage of Senate File 257 in February 2015. As required by Senate File 257, this program includes a list of the critical highway and bridge projects funded with the additional revenue. As with other recent programs, there continues to be uncertainty in federal funding for roads and bridges. The most recent federal authorization, Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21), will expire July 31, 2015. At the same time that MAP-21 expires and absent Congressional action, the federal Highway Trust Fund will no longer be able to provide funding at current levels. This could result in reduced federal funding reimbursement for projects already underway and/or full elimination of federal highway funding for new projects in federal fiscal year 2016. These two issues provide funding uncertainty with this program in fiscal year 2016 and beyond.
