Statewide Multi-Discipline Safety Team (MDST) Program
In addition to the other services Iowa LTAP offers, the Statewide MDST program can assist with a number of technical services that can help further develop existing safety groups, establish new relationships and foster growth of innovative and effective safety practices within the transportation community in the state of Iowa. One of the program's main goals is interagency collaboration and information exchange. This approach will improve communication on technical transportation issues among professionals from local governments, cities, counties, metropolitan planning organizations and regional entities and the DOT statewide.
