The proposed Davenport to Lacrosse route corridor includes the Iowa counties of Scott, Clinton, Jackson, and Dubuque. In addition, an influence region has been defined which includes six additional counties. The region is predominantly agricultural, however, following the national trend, movement away from the small farm to large mechanized operations has created an adequate labor force for the two major industrial cities of Davenport and Dubuque. From a total 1971 regional work force of 186,990, only 23,190, or slightly over 12% were engaged in agriculture, 91% of the land area being agricultural notwithstanding. It is forecasted that the urban population of the two counties containing the above cities will increase by 26% between 1970 and 1990, while the population of the remaining region counties can expect only a 3% increase.
