The Iowa Department of Transportation (Iowa DOT) announced a new five-year plan Wednesday for highway construction projects that will come with a $3.4 billion price tag.

More than $1 billion will be invested in repairing state-owned bridges that are structurally deficient, many of which will begin repairs this year. More than 200 bridges have undergone repairs since 2006 due to similar funding and programs.

The Iowa DOT Office of Program Management has released more details about the 2018-2022 five-year highway plan on their website, including an interactive map feature.
