What are the Local Systems emails

As a service to local governments, the Local Systems  Bureau distributes a variety of transportation-related information via e-mail on a regular basis. This information typically includes: changes to policies or procedures; funding opportunities; conferences, workshops or other training opportunities; job openings at the Iowa DOT, local governments or other transportation agencies; and other information that may be of interest to local transportation officials, their consultants and other transportation agencies.

The Local Systems Bureau has sole discretion concerning the type of information that may be sent to our email list. We do not advertise products or services offered by private individuals or companies, unless those products or services are directly related to an initiative sponsored or supported by the Iowa DOT or one of our transportation partner organizations. Emails are usually sent out within two working days of receipt, but other priorities may govern when we can send your information. Therefore, if you have time-sensitive information, please provide as much lead time as possible. Contact Travis Bakken to send a mailing.
