Iowa DOT: Smarter, Simpler, Driven

Welcome to the Iowa State Rail and Freight Plan Website!

The Iowa Department of Transportation (DOT) is in the process of developing an Iowa State Rail Plan and Iowa State Freight Plan to identify and evaluate our existing rail and freight systems as well as to plan for the needs of both systems for the next 25 years.

The DOT is working on these plans concurrently in an effort to merge rail and freight elements into the larger multimodal and intermodal transportation framework.

Given the natural overlap of these two topics, the DOT will combine opportunities for stakeholders and the public to provide input to both plans.

The DOT is committed to an open and inclusive process for stakeholders and the public throughout the development and implementation of both Rail and Freight Plans.
