The California Department of Transportation strives to collaborate with California’s citizens to provide motorists with clean and beautiful roadsides. The Caltrans Adopt-A-Highway Program provides an avenue for individuals, organizations, or businesses to help maintain sections of roadside within California’s State Highway System.
The Adopt-A-Highway Program, which began in 1989, has been one of the truly successful government-public partnerships of our time. More than 120,000 Californians have cleaned and enhanced over 15,000 miles of roadside.
Adoption types include litter removal, supplemental litter removal, graffiti removal, vegetation control, tree and shrub planting, wildflower planting, and spot wildflower planting.
