Want to Help Keep Your Community Clean? Adopt a Highway!
Since 1988, Kentucky has been participating in the International Adopt-A-Highway Program and we are fortunate to have over 800 Adopt-A-Highway groups in the state working on over 5,100 miles of road. The participants in Butler County include: Cargill-Sugar Grove Farm, Aleris Recycling and Provo Rural Development Club. This program provides the opportunity to get involved in the community and show others how important a clean environment is to you, your community, and your state.
Participants in this program may include any permanently established business, associations, community programs, public organizations, and even families. When adopting a highway, groups adopt a standard two-mile section of road for a period of two years. Groups sign a contract with the Transportation Cabinet which can be renewed after the two-year time frame.
Volunteers are provided trash bags and safety vests which can be obtained at each State Maintenance Facility or at the District Three Office located at 900 Morgantown Road. A sign denoting your group will also be installed along the section you have adopted.
With the beginning of a new year, why not start it off right and help keep our state as clean as possible? As your new Adopt-A-Highway for District Three and on behalf of the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, I would like to say Thank You to all of our active participants.
Again, Thank You to all of our active participants and if anyone would like more information on how to adopt a highway, feel free to contact me, Loren Stinson, at the District Three Office by phone 270-746-7898 or email at email@example.com.
