About

This program is funded by a Traffic Safety Improvement Program (TSIP) grant through the Iowa DOT Traffic and Safety Office. It was initiated in March 2008 through Iowa LTAP and continues to strengthen communications and working relationships between the Iowa DOT traffic safety department and local agencies. Working with the Safety Circuit Rider, Iowa Traffic Safety Data Service (ITSDS), state multi-disciplinary safety teams (MDST), Iowa DOT safety staff, and training personnel, the Liaison seeks to provide timely information and assistance to locals by providing the following:

  • crash maps and reviews
  • program contacts
  • reviews (when requested) for site analysis & safety mitigation suggestions
  • assistance with grant program applications
  • safety findings from recent research
  • responses to specific safety questions of local agencies
  • assistance with workshops, such as the Fall safety series, retro-reflectivity, and others

For assistance with your traffic safety related questions or problems, contact (vacant) at 515-294-8130 or email.
