Corridor preservation is a tool the Iowa DOT uses to preserve land for future needs as well as protecting 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.

This CPZ was first established in 2018. The Iowa DOT is renewing this CPZ on April 11, 2024.

This CPZ is valid for a period of three years.
