Iowa is on the move! Iowa's highway system consists of more than 114,000 miles roadway
and over 24,000 bridges. The Iowa DOT works along with county and city governments
to design, build, and maintain that system. But that's not all – the Iowa DOT's
workforce and responsibilities are as diverse as the communities we serve. These
include Iowa's rail, river, aviation, trails, and public transit systems. Staffed
by over 3,000 highly skilled and motivated employees, located at offices and transportation
facilities throughout the state, the Iowa DOT is driven to move people and goods
safely and efficiently.
