Dubuque Metropolitan Area Transportation Study
The Dubuque Metropolitan Area Transportation Study (DMATS) is a tri-state Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) located at the boundary intersections of the states of Iowa, Illinois and Wisconsin.
The committee is responsible for approving goals and plans for the development of a seamless transportation system for the safe and efficient movement of people and goods within and between modes of transportation (roads, bicycle and pedestrian facilities, transit, rail, water and air) in Dubuque County.
DMATS encourages and fosters cooperation between local, regional, state and federal agencies to discuss transportation issues and plans.
Examples of DMATS projects include the U.S. Highway 20 Corridor Study, Julien Dubuque Bridge Capacity Improvements Study, and the Southwest Arterial planning and programming.
