The Adopt-a-Highway Program helps keep roadsides clean. Volunteer groups clean a designated segment of approximately two miles. This program is coordinated by the Dakota County Transportation Department. RequirementsThe group agrees to clean up its road segment at least twice a year for a minimum of two years. The Transportation Department provides safety vests and trash bags. The maintenance crew will pick up and dispose of filled bags and other items. For more information, see the Adopt-a-Highway Brochure and Safety Tips.
