Adopt a Highway
What is Adopt a Highway?
The Adopt a Highway Program was approved by the Wright County Board of Commissioners on March 12, 1991. This program allows interested citizens and community organizations an excellent opportunity to contribute to their community by adopting a segment of county highway to help keep the roadsides free of litter.
The Highway Department provides high visibility safety vests, trash bags, and safety training materials. The organization/individual should then notify the Highway Department where the filled trash bags have been set so that they can be picked up by our Highway Department maintenance personnel.
What is required?
Adopt a Highway
Volunteer groups can choose an available segment (approximately two miles) and are responsible for keeping this area of roadway clean. Groups are asked to clean their road segments at least two times a year, but are welcome to do it more often than that.
Pick a Highway
Similar to Adopt a Highway, but the group agrees to clean its road segment only one time.
Wright County recognizes the participants and community organizations with Adopt a Highway signs after five years of continuous service and also through local media coverage. The groups are also presented with a Certificate of Appreciation.
How do I get involved/order supplies?
For additional Adopt a Highway information and to arrange a time to pick up your bags/vests, contact Adam Backes @ 763-682-7706 or 1-800-362-3667.
