Downloading plans and proposal forms.

I have gotten a few calls about how to get plans off the Iowa DOT website.  Plans are located on the Iowa DOT Office of Contracts website:


After you click on the letting you click on the project you want to download.


All files are now zipped or compressed to make them smaller and quicker to download.  You need to extract the file to use them.


After you extract all files you can delete the zip folder to save space on your hard drive.


The plan and proposal forms are in a pdf file format.  You need a pdf viewer like the free Adobe Reader to open the file.  I use Bluebeam Revu which I found to be easier than Reader.
