DOT’s $3.2 billion in construction plans includes U.S. 69 at Ankeny


The Iowa Department of Transportation has compiled a draft five-year plan that includes the $3.2 billion in construction that will use all of the extra revenue generated by the increase in the state fuel tax this year. The work includes only critical roads and bridge improvements, as ordered by the Iowa Legislature. The work will include improvements to U.S. Highway 69 from Interstate Highway 80 to Ankeny. A whole list of previously planned projects would stay on track, including the widening of Iowa Highway 141 from Iowa 44 to Interstate 35. The Iowa Transportation Commission still has to approve the five-year plan.
