Iowa Transportation Commissions Meets in QC

A key group of state officials will focus on the transportation needs of the Quad Cities next week . The Iowa Transportation Commission will hold its monthly meeting in Davenport, Monday and Tuesday. 

Department spokesman, Stewart Anderson, says the commission holds four meetings a year in different locations around the state, to see current and future projects first-hand, and to get public comments.
Monday commissioners will tour this area, starting with the new I-74 bridge.

The commission will also visit the Davenport airport, look at Kimberly Road which is also a state highway, and talk about what roads might be needed to a new casino in north Davenport.

Tuesday the Iowa Transportation Commission will hold its regular meeting at the Davenport Radisson Hotel, beginning at 8 am. 
Delegations from several cities, including Dyersville and Independence are scheduled to make presentations, plus "coalitions" representing highways 20, 30, and 61.
