Jasper County Highway Project Threatens Family Farm
JASPER COUNTY, Iowa --A Jasper County farmer is fighting for the right to keep his land. Tuesday the DOT Commission approved a five year plan that includes a re-design on the intersection of highways 330 and 65. The Iowa Department of Transportation has two plans to make this intersection safer. One of them calls for taking 50-acres of Larry Cleverley's land plus three homes on the property and out buildings.
