Iowa DOT: 100 years and counting

The interesting thing about transportation is that we have  being doing it a long time. The way that we have traveled has changed, but the fact is that whether it has been by foot, camel, train or rocket, we have indeed been about the business of transportation for a very, very long time.

Despite that long history, it is still worth noting certain milestones. This week the Iowa Department of Transportation celebrated its 100th anniversary. The folks there have put together a wonderful history website that provides an excellent multi-modal trip back in time, exploring the people, the innovation and the changing ways in which we travel.

Happy anniversary, Iowa DOT!
