Many years ago, the Iowa Alpha Chapter of Tau Beta Pi adopted a two-mile stretch of Lincoln Highway on the west side of Ames. The Chapter continues to maintain this section of highway each semester. The clean-up generally takes place on a Sunday afternoon late in the fall and spring semesters when temperatures are relatively moderate. Spring semester 2022 the Adopt-A-Highway community service project took place on Sunday afternoon, 10 April. The amount of trash collected was quite large following high winds the week prior to the cleanup. The event had been postponed for a week do to rain and a temperature of less than 40 degrees.
