About the research

Abstract: There has been a great deal of concern by county engineers and supervisors over constrained budgets, lack of resources, and a deteriorating infrastructure as they affect the secondary road system in Iowa. In addition, public input and/or political pressure have been increasing over the years. This study was initiated to determine the most important issues facing counties and document the way in which various Iowa counties have been addressing those issues.
