TDOT’s Adopt-A-Highway program makes for the perfect business, group or family volunteer activity. Participating in the program gives you the opportunity to get outdoors, give back to your community and make a positive impact on the environment.

It’s a win, win, win!

WHAT WE ASK OF OUR GROUPS

  • Adopt two miles of roadway for at least one year.
  • Conduct a total of four litter clean ups a year. One pickup per season is recommended, but groups can conduct clean ups more frequently if desired.

ADOPT-A-HIGHWAY GROUP PERKS

  • TDOT will provide volunteers with all necessary supplies and safety materials (trash bags, trash grabbers, gloves, caution signs and class 2 safety vests).
  • Your group name posted on a recognition panel installed below the official Adopt-A-Highway sign.
  • Pride in knowing you are doing your part to help keep Tennessee beautiful.
