Many current landowners still farm their land and need safe and efficient access across and along Highway 20. The current plan bisects the farmland, increasing time and difficulty in traversing the corridor for farmers and motorists.
The Garrett Farm was bisected by I-65 years ago. The family has farmed this land since before Decatur was a city and before Alabama was a state. Now, the Garretts’ land is being taken from them against their wishes to put in an ill-conceived access plan.
