ACTT Workshop: Iowa
Chapter 4: Conclusions
4.1. Next Steps
The Iowa DOT and the CBIS project team will be evaluating the recommendations from the skill sets, defining and developing each to the point that Iowa can evaluate its potential benefits and value to the project. The Iowa DOT realizes that it may not have the opportunity to utilize all of the ideas put forth by the skill sets on this corridor. However, a number of ideas arising from the workshop have the potential to be utilized on other projects.
The Iowa DOT plans on holding future workshop sessions with FHWA to assess the long-term benefits of the workshop and the applicability of each recommendation to the CBIS project.
As the ideas and innovations in this report show, the collaboration of national experts and local representatives has proven valuable in the acceleration and success of the Council Bluffs Interstate Systems Improvements Project.
