Iowa's vast network of roads and highways reaches even into the smallest communities in the state. Without this network, living in Iowa would be entirely different. The highway system enables travel to and from school, work, business, and play. These highways tie in with those of neighboring states, allowing access to the more than 4.5 million miles of the nation's highway system. The national highway system makes it possible for Iowa's products to be taken to other parts of the country, and to bring into the state the goods and services Iowans need. In times of disaster, highways are used to transport people, needed supplies, and equipment. There is no doubt that highways play an important role in the health and welfare of the state and the nation.
