Iowa unveils $2.7B highway spending plan

DES MOINES — Iowa's preliminary five-year highway spending plan includes more than $900 million for state-owned bridges and more than $1.2 billion for enhanced safety features and upgrades on state highways.

The Des Moines Register says the Iowa Transportation Department unveiled the estimated $2.7 billion plan on Tuesday. It covers fiscal years 2015 through 2019.

The plan include reconstruction work on Interstate 29 in Sioux City, the interstate system in Council Bluffs, and the replacement of the Mississippi River bridge on Interstate 74 in Bettendorf that links Iowa and Illinois.

The draft program is posted and available for public comment on the Iowa DOT's website at http://bit.ly/1qChUsw . The Iowa Transportation Commission is scheduled to consider final approval of the program on June 10 at a meeting in Perry.
