Make a difference - join the Adopt-A-Highway program

Do you want to improve your community? Help the environment? Raise awareness on the negative effects of pollution and the positive aspects of a clean community?

Take a moment. Make a difference. Join the Adopt-A-Highway program in Kansas. The goal of the program is to clean along the roadways throughout the state to increase safety for motorists and pedestrians as well as improve the beauty of Kansas.

Any non-profit group that does not discriminate upon the basis of race, religion or sex can join. Groups have clean ups three times a year and are recognized for their efforts with signs marking their sections of highway.

Adopt-A-Highway groups are gearing up for the annual Clean Up Kansas Campaign which will take place during the month of April. This event, as well as the program, are sponsored by the Kansas Department of Transportation. All Adopt-A-Highway groups are encouraged but not required to participate in the statewide event.

There are approximately 2,000 Adopt-A-Highway groups in Kansas. One by one, those groups are helping to make Kansas a better place to live and visit. For more information, contact the KDOT office in your area.
