The Iowa Department of Transportation will hold a public information meeting to discuss the proposed road, bicycle, and pedestrian alternatives on U.S. 69 from the Warren County Line in Des Moines to I-80 in Polk County. The U.S. 69 Location Study is evaluating existing and future multimodal operations as well as safety and reliability. Focused, concept-level projects to specific areas along the corridor will be identified. These projects will balance needs and improve safety for motorists, pedestrians, bicyclists, and transit users.
The Iowa DOT is providing two meeting formats for the public meeting: in person and an at your own pace virtual meeting. Depending on COVID conditions, in your community, the meeting may need to be moved completely online. If that happens, updates will be found on this web page.
Date/Time: Anytime between Oct. 12 – Oct. 25, 2021
Experience a self-guided tour of proposed alternatives and submit comments and questions at any time during the comment period. If you do not have access to the internet, or need assistance viewing the materials, please contact the DOT representative listed below.
