Notice of corridor preservation for I-80 in Dallas County

AMES, Iowa – April 11, 2024 – The Iowa Department of Transportation is providing public notice of renewal of a corridor preservation zone for I-80 from west of U.S. 6/U.S. 169 (DeSoto) interchange to west of Grand Prairie Parkway in Dallas County. This notice includes a map of the corridor preservation zone (see the project display below). The width of the corridor preservation zone varies depending on the location within the corridor.

This corridor preservation zone was first established in 2018. The Iowa DOT is renewing this corridor preservation zone on April 11, 2024. It is valid for three years.

Corridor preservation is a tool the Iowa DOT uses to preserve land for future needs as well as protect property owners. It does not restrict development in any way, but merely offers the DOT a chance to review the proposed development when notified by the city or county.
