What is Highway Adoption

Essentially, adoption means that you have made the commitment to keep a section of roadway clean for a minimum of three years.  Normally, this involves partaking in two clean-ups per year, one being in the spring and another happening in the fall. After a group completes two clean-ups of their adopted route they can request signage, one sign being located at either end of the adopted route. After the three years are completed, you will have the choice to either renew your adoption or disband your group. You can also end your adoption commitment at any time.

“Adopting” a section of roadway is really quite simple and very rewarding!
