Iowa's preliminary five-year highway spending plan includes more than $900 million for state-owned bridges and more than $1.2 billion for enhanced safety features and upgrades on state highways.

The Iowa Transportation Department unveiled the estimated $2.7 billion plan on Tuesday. It covers fiscal years 2015 through 2019.

The plan includes reconstruction work on the interstate system in Council Bluffs and on Interstate 29 in Sioux City and the replacement of the Mississippi River bridge on Interstate 74 in Bettendorf that links Iowa and Illinois.

The draft program is posted and available for public comment on the Iowa DOT's website at iowadot.gov. The Iowa Transportation Commission is scheduled to consider final approval of the program on June 10th at a meeting in Perry.
