The Iowa Department of Transportation and Iowa Transportation Commission are seeking public input regarding the Iowa Bicycle and Pedestrian Long-Range Plan. This plan will build upon the Commission’s long-range strategy for multimodal transportation over the next three decades, Iowa in Motion 2045.

The Bicycle and Pedestrian Long-Range Plan has three key objectives:

  • Serve as the primary guide for Iowa DOT decision-making regarding bicycle and pedestrian programs and facilities.
  • Help achieve improved project-level coordination within the Iowa DOT.
  • Provide consistency and mobility for bicycle and pedestrian users statewide.

In addition, this plan will serve an important role in improving safety for all road users, reducing crashes, and bringing Iowa closer to the goal of zero fatalities on Iowa’s roadways, and aligns to federal regulations that require bicycle and pedestrian accommodations be routinely and consistently considered in the design of transportation facilities. The Iowa DOT has drafted the Iowa Bicycle and Pedestrian Long-Range Plan to consistently implement best practices when considering such accommodations.

The Iowa DOT will be accepting public comments on the plan through Sept. 4, 2018. You can view the plan and related information online at To provide comments, please contact the Iowa DOT, Office of Systems Planning, 800 Lincoln Way, Ames, Iowa 50010, telephone 515-239-1520, or email
