Five Year Construction Program

Every year Black Hawk County prepares an updated Five Year Construction Program. This plan includes the road and bridge locations, estimated costs and a general type rehabilitation or reconstruction that is anticipated. The Five Year Construction Program is a planning tool that allows counties to program future construction projects and start the project development process. The Construction Program contains the project descriptions with the anticipated funding amounts and funding sources. There are several funding sources that the County is required to balance as part of this program: Farm-to-Market Funds, Highway Bridge Program, and Local Construction Funds.

The Black Hawk County Engineer's Office is alway interested in receiving comments on our construction projects. Whether you have comments for projects that are in the Construction Plan or not. Feel free to fill out the information in the form below to submit a comment.
