Mt. Clemens, MI - The Macomb County Department of Roads (MCDR) is asking residents to spring into action to help keep the roads and community clean by adopting a county roadway. Registered participants can start cleaning adopted roads April 3 and applications to adopt available roadways is now open.
“Whether people are visiting Macomb County for the first time or driving on our roads daily, the appearance of our roadways matters,” said Macomb County Executive Mark A. Hackel. “The Adopt-A-County Road program is a great opportunity for individuals and groups to take an active role in our community while making a positive environmental change.”
There is no cost to participate in the program and individuals, families, businesses, charitable organizations, schools and other groups can adopt a section of road. A simple three-step adoption process and a commitment of two cleanups per year is all it takes to make a positive difference in Macomb County. MCDR provides safety vests, trash bags and safety guidelines and information to registered participants.
As part of the program, participants receive roadside signage highlighting their organization and are included in the online map of adopted roads and the list of sponsors displayed on the Adopt-A-County Road website.
“While we work to build and repair our roads, everyone can help keep our community clean by adopting a county road,” said MCDR Director Bryan Santo. “With no costs and an easy process to get started, the Adopt-A-County Road program is a great opportunity for individuals and groups to take an active role in our community.”
Applying for the program is easy and can be completed online. Additional information, an interactive map and a comprehensive list of adopted and available roads are available at adoptaroad.macombgov.org.
