Adopt-A-Highway Program Information

The Pledge

Volunteers enter into a two-year agreement with DOT, during which they agree to conduct litter removal at regularly scheduled intervals. Many miles of highway are adopted statewide by various organizations, allowing civic-minded people to make a difference in their communities. This eases the load of DOT work crews, enabling them to devote more time to other road maintenance and special highway projects.

Volunteers Agree to:

  • "Adopt" a two-mile section of a State Highway
  • Dedicate two years to the program
  • Follow specified DOT safety regulations
  • Remove litter a minimum of four times each year


FDOT Agree to:

  • Assist with safety meetings
  • Provide safety vests and litter bags
  • Pick up litter at specified locations
  • Post Adopt-a-Highway signs commending the group at the beginning and end of their section
