Drivers asked to be watchful for Adopt-A-Highway crews

WISCONSIN (CBS 58) -- The Wisconsin Department of Transportation is asking the public to be watchful as volunteers will be out removing trash and recyclables along state highways.

Last year, Wisconsin’s 2,734 Adopt-A-Highway groups collected 144 tons of trash and recyclables.

“Adopt-A-Highway volunteers provide a valuable public service by removing litter to keep Wisconsin state highway roadsides clean and attractive,” said Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Secretary-Designee Craig Thompson. “When drivers see crews out working, we ask that they slow down and, when possible, move over to provide additional working space.”
