Year’s Second Adopt-A-Highway Cleanup Begins this Weekend

Michigan Department of Transportation

The Michigan Department of Transportation is reminding motorists to be on the lookout this weekend as the year’s second Adopt- A-Highway pickup begins this weekend. Thousands of volunteers will pick up litter along state roadways beginning Saturday and running through Sunday, July 20th. Volunteers include civic groups, businesses and families.

State Transportation Director Kirk T. Steudle says “these volunteers are performing a great community service. After cost overruns from the brutal winter, Adopt-A-Highway crews give a financial boost to MDOT, and the entire state, by doing a necessary job that we couldn’t otherwise fund.”

In 2013, Adopt-A-Highway volunteers reported collecting 70,000 bags of trash, a $5.5 million value for the state. Volunteers wear high-visibility, yellow-green safety vests. MDOT provides free safety vests and trash bags, and arranges to haul away the trash.

Sections of the highway are still available for adoption by groups. Those interested should check out There is no fee to participate and a signs bearing the group’s name are posted along the stretch of adopted highway.

This year’s final Adopt-A-highway pickup is scheduled for the Fall from September 20th to 28th.
