Iowa DOT Digital Gallery

Welcome to the Iowa Department of Transportation's (DOT) digital gallery, which was established in December 2008 to begin providing greater public access to thousands of images digitized from the Iowa DOT’s vast collections, including photographs, maps, documents, prints, and more.

Please accept our invitation to view our collections by clicking on the Accept button, which also means you agree
to the terms of use.


The inaugural collection of Flood 2008 photos depicts the devastating effects that year’s summer‘s floods had on Iowa’s transportation systems.

In addition to these collections, the Iowa DOT offers a
Historic Archives Digital Collections site specifically aimed at providing public access to early transportation resources dating back to the late 1800s. It is one of the few digital collections of historical transportation artifacts in the country.
Numerous photos remain partially identified and we would appreciate any help the public can provide in the identification process. If you can help us identify an image,
