Greenbelt Trail and Park (which is owned and managed by the City of Clive) is located at the southwest corner of 128th Street and U.S. 6/Hickman Road. The DOT needs 0.48 acre of permanent acquisition, 0.09 acre of permanent easement, and 0.52 acre of temporary easement for the widening and reconstruction project at that corner from the park property.
