The state transportation plan (Plan) is a long-range document that addresses federal requirements and serves as a transportation investment guide. The Iowa Department of Transportation’s (DOT) long-range planning process is called Iowa in Motion, and the most recent Plan developed through this process was adopted in 2012. The Plan is updated every five years in order to stay current with trends, forecasts, and factors that influence decision-making, such as legislation, funding, technological changes, and state priorities. The Plan forecasts the demand for transportation infrastructure and services to 2045 based on consideration of social and economic changes likely to occur during this time. Iowa’s dynamic economy and the need to meet future challenges will continue to place pressure on the transportation system. With this in mind, the Plan provides direction for each transportation mode and supports a continued emphasis on stewardship. The Iowa DOT views stewardship as efficient investment and prudent, responsible management of the existing transportation system.
