US Route 30 - Lincoln Highway Corridor Management Plan - Iowa

The Lincoln Highway has been enjoying renewed interest through the heritage tourism movement while also facing the threat of significant changes made necessary through improvements needed on US 30 and other portions of the Lincoln Highway no longer on US 30. The dilemma between highway improvement and resource protection has at times resulted in conflict and adversity between competing interests on past projects. The intent of this study is to find a way to minimize the conflict through the development of a corridor management plan. The plan is 1) to direct the thoughtful placement of new roadway alignments and the sensitive design of new engineering and landscape developments and 2) to protect and enhance existing natural, cultural, historic and visual resources within the US Route 30-Lincoln Highway Corridor. While these can be competing interests, the intent is to achieve a balance that is acceptable to the stakeholders who have an interest in this highway corridor.
