Iowa DOT needs your input on interstate rest areas


June 28th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

The Iowa Department of Transportation says they will be conducting a rest area users’ opinion survey in June and July to assist in planning for future rest area needs. The same survey will be conducted in a variety of ways.

  • Anyone can take the survey online at beginning June 28 through July 16.
  • Rest area visitors to the Wilton, Osceola, Cedar Rapids, Onawa, Pacific Junction, Waukee, and Dows facilities will be asked to participate in the surveys during daytime hours June 28-30 and July 12-14.
  • Surveys will be send via email (if address is available) or regular mail to all of the state’s registered commercial motor carriers.
  • Printed surveys will be made available at all rest areas and weigh stations during the study period.

The survey has been designed to be completed in three to five minutes.
