MoDOT Says Warmer Temperatures Are Ideal For Cleaning Missouri Highways

As the unseasonably warm temperatures continue, the Missouri Department of Transportation is looking for help removing litter from the state’s roadways.

Since 1987, Missouri’s Adopt-A-Highway program has involved volunteers across the state working together to clean up the state.

The program currently contains 5,300 groups and 50-thousand volunteers.

More than 6,400 miles of roadway are already adopted.

Last year, MoDOT spent 6.4 million dollars to remove litter from more than 385-thousand acres of roadsides along 34-thousand state highway miles.

State Highway Maintenance Director, Natalie Roark, says the best way to prevent litter is to avoid creating it.
