The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is holding their first cleanup of the year from April 12th to April 20th. MDOT would like volunteers to participate in Adopt-A-Highway to help make our roads look better. Due to Michigan’s long hard winter, maintenance budgets have been cut, forcing MDOT to have limited funds for summer.

In 2013, Adopt-A- Highway groups collected an estimated 70,000 bags of trash, which is a cost savings benefit to the state of $5.5 million.Groups are asked to adopt a section for at least two years and signs bearing the group names are posted along the stretch of adopted highway. MDOT will provide visibility vests and trash bags for free and also arranges to haul away the trash. MDOT says crew members have to at least be twelve years old and each group must number at least three people. There is no fee to participate.

For more information Later this year, there will also be a summer pickup from July 12th to 20th, and a fall pickup from September 20th to 28th.
