Because transportation projects can greatly affect a community, public input is extremely important. Public involvement opportunities allow interested individuals the chance to provide ideas and comments regarding the development of a transportation project. This I-380 Planning Study - Public Involvement Plan (PIP) is the guiding document for the public involvement process. The study’s success hinges on communication and cooperation with the public, local communities, state and federal agencies. The PIP outlines how the Iowa DOT will communicate to stakeholders and the public throughout the study process.
