TRANSPLAN 76: INITIAL IOWA TRANSPORTATION PLAN
This plan which stresses the roles played by the public and private sectors in providing transportation services is presented in seven sections which cover: statewide transportation planning, the Iowa Transportation Policy, modes, needs, resources and programming, critical issues, and public investment in transportation. Iowa has been using a needs study approach for more than 15 years as its basic highway planning tool. The Iowa Transportation Plan is concerned with the socio economic and environmental consequences of transportation investments as well as decisions on types and timing of investments and funding sources. Iowa's transportation policy supports the establishment of an adequate and safe multimodal transportation system. Air, waterway, rail, transit, road and pipe transit modes are considered, and financial needs and resources are discussed. Passenger and freight modes and planning values related to energy intensiveness are discussed, and freight and passenger cost characteristics are noted.
