Adopt-A-Highway Program



When you join Alaska DOT&PF’s Adopt-A-Highway program, you become a vital part of an important public/private partnership that is dedicated to keeping Alaska’s roadsides clean and attractive. No special skills or experience are required – just a commitment to the community and concern for the environment.

The Alaska Adopt-A-Highway program began in 1991, it is one of the truly successful government-public partnerships of our time. More than 664 groups have cleaned and enhanced over 1,535 shoulder-miles of roadside!

What it means to join the Adopt-A-Highway Program:

  • Your group can select a mile (or more) of roadway you would like to sponsor. Groups can be family members, churches, businesses, organizations or even a group of friends!
  • Your group agrees to pick up litter in your section of road at least three times per year, following all the safety guidelines in your agreement.
  • This program is a three-year commitment, with the option to renew your agreement at the end of each term.
  • Your group’s name will be placed on an Adopt-A-Highway sign at the site for recognition.
