"The Iowa Department of Transportation (IowaDOT) is working through a phased transition from a 4-inch pavement marking standard line width to a 6-inch line width on roadways within DOT jurisdiction.  This change will happen within the next few years as funding becomes available and will be denoted in project plans.  These changes do not remove any pavement marking options currently available."
