Working at the Iowa Department of Transportation, we all know there are more needs on our transportation system than funds available to complete them. In the past few months we’ve blogged about Iowa in Motion, the long-range transportation plan that is a “big picture” look at what changes will be needed in the decades to come. So now we have an overall picture of where we want to go, but there’s a second challenge for employees. How do we move from planning long-term transportation changes to something more immediate, say in the next five years? That’s where our Iowa Transportation Improvement Program, known simply as the Five-Year Program, comes into play.
