City and State DOT Collaborate on Study

Posted on 23 January 2014 by KWBG

BOONE, Iowa—The Boone City Council has given final approval to an agreement with the Iowa Department of Transportation to combine resources on a corridor study.  City Engineer Wayne Schwartz, the City’s Technical Representative on the Central Iowa Regional Transportation Planning Authority, was able to secure $40,000 in funding through the Surface Transportation Program which required a $10,000 local match.  The money was targeted for a corridor study on Highway 30 in the Boone City limits to deal with transportation questions related to the relocation of Wal-Mart in Boone.  Schwartz than began talks with the Iowa DOT and discovered plans were in the works to do a corridor study on Highway 30 and Highway 17 north to old Highway 30.  The DOT has budget $100,000 for their study.  By combining the two efforts, Boone Mayor John Slight says the scope of the information will increase and will examine potential and operational safety issues and offer potential improvements between Montana Road east to “U” Avenue and Highway 17 from the Junction at Highway 30 to 190th Street to the north.  A completion date for the study was not available.
