The Iowa Department of Transportation is providing public notice of corridor preservation for Interstate 80 at the U.S. 169 interchange in De Soto, Dallas County. Width of the corridor preservation zone varies depending upon location within the corridor. Corridor preservation is a tool the Iowa DOT uses to preserve land for future highway needs. 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.
The Iowa DOT implemented corridor preservation for this project on July 29, 2021. It is the intent of the Iowa DOT to continue to utilize corridor preservation for this project. The Iowa DOT may need to acquire additional right of way or property rights within this designated area.
This notice shall be valid for a period of three years from the date of publication of notification of city or county, and may be refiled by the Iowa DOT every three years.
