Volunteers will be out in full force to spring clean area highways. The Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) announces that Adopt-a-Highway Spring Clean Week will be March 20-26.
More than 900 groups participate in Kentucky's Adopt-a-Highway program, which was established in 1988. Volunteers clean approximately 6,800 miles of roadside annually, setting an example of responsible environmental stewardship. Approximately 4 percent of eligible Butler County highways are adopted.
The Adopt-a-Highway program promotes public environmental awareness and supports tourism. The program also creates a partnership between citizens, community and government, and establishes a sense of pride in the Bluegrass State.
Litter pickups are held at least four times per year or as many times as necessary to keep adopted areas reasonably litter-free. The cabinet coordinates three annual clean-up efforts.
