Adopt A Highway Program

"The Natural State" … We can all be proud of this well-deserved name.  Your organization or civic group can help ensure we live up to that name by participating in the Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department's Adopt A Highway program.  This program provides concerned groups the opportunity to perform a worthwhile community service that enhances our state's image and natural beauty. 
The Adopt A Highway program allows volunteer groups to adopt a section of state highway for the purpose of litter control.  The object of the program is to increase public awareness of the monumental task of managing Arkansas' rights-of-way and to promote public involvement.  With more than 100,000 acres of right-of-way to maintain along the 16,367-mile State Highway System, litter has become a major problem.  Not only does it detract from our State's natural beauty, it costs Arkansas taxpayers over $3.8 million annually to pick up.  The Adopt-A- Highway program provides a mechanism for concerned citizens to address this problem and become personally involved in improving our environment.
