See why you should join Adopt-a-Highway

For the past few months, a group of us have spent hours and hours talking trash. We have – and still are – working very hard to increase participation in WSDOT’s Adopt-a-Highway program.

I would like to personally thank those of you who have adopted 35 percent of Washington’s highway miles. Yes – only 35 percent of our state’s highways are “adopted.”

Own a business? Think about Adopt-a-Highway. Get your business name on a highway sign and let your customers know you care about the community.

You don’t have to own a business to participate. Anyone (age 15 or older) can get a group of family, friends or colleagues who want to help keep Washington “Everclean and Evergreen.”

And don’t just take my word for it. See for yourself. And then join Adopt-a-Highway.
