The Adopt-A-Highway Program enables ODOT to save taxpayer dollars and allows communities and residents of Ohio to help keep their state clean and free from litter. The program allows ODOT work crews more time to devote to its core functions, including road and maintenance and construction projects.
CSPS agrees to "adopt" a highway by cleaning up a two mile stretch at least four times a year in order to keep Ohio's roads attractive and free of litter. In addition to heoping keep Ohio roadways clean, CSPS can draw positive media coverage by participating in the program.
As an extra incentive, ODOT has placed green signs on the section of highway that has been "adopted." The signs are inscribed with with the adopting group's name and placed at each end of their two mile section.
