Regional Priorities

The MPO annually develops a list of priority transportation projects to include in the Greater Des Moines Partnership’s Policy Book for its trip to Washington, D.C.  While in D.C., business and community leaders from Central Iowa meet with Iowa’s congressional delegation to promote these regional priorities.  The 2015 Priority Projects list includes 13 projects, ranging from trail connections to a bus-rapid transit route.  All projects can be viewed in the maps linked below.
