The Scott County Secondary Roads Department has set in place a five-year plan for construction projects. This plan is updated annually; as one year’s projects are completed a new fifth year is added.
Local agencies are required by the State of Iowa to follow this procedure. Construction projects scheduled for the current year are locked in place but work planned for years 2 through 5 may be added, dropped or rescheduled if necessary.
Scott County uses this system as a planning tool to prepare for future construction and prioritize areas of greatest need.
