In August 2017, the Iowa Department of Transportation (IDOT) announced plans to implement a smart truck parking program at 21 public rest areas and 16 private truck stops by January 2019.
The goal is to improve truck parking along the busy I-80 corridor. According to the Jason's Law Truck Parking Survey, this corridor is one of the country's top five worst locations with regard to overall parking shortages. If Iowa's program is considered successful after three years of testing, IDOT hopes to expand it to other locations around the state.
