The TR-608 project developed methods and processes for determining current and future Iowa secondary (county) road needs. These tools will be permanently maintained and operated by the Iowa County Engineers Association Service Bureau to provide ongoing need determination services for the state’s ninety-nine county road departments. The systems established via this project will annually tally and report a) how much funding is needed to sustain the county roads long term, b) the adequacy of the secondary roads for the traffic they carry and c) what upgrade needs exist. A “Trend Projection Engine” will also be available to project from current circumstance, with continuation of known revenue and cost trends, to estimate potential outcomes occurring in the next fifteen years. Now that it has been developed, the TR-608 system will continue as an ongoing resource of county road and bridge numbers, condition, trends and issue information for use by counties, either individually or collectively.
