HCCO, together with COUNT (Central Ohio United Non-Theists), are asking for volunteers for ODOT's Adopt-A-Highway (AAH) Program! HCCO just revived its participation in the AAH Program on August 24, and we had a great time that morning! HCCO's area is the Cleveland Avenue/I270 interchange. This will be our last AAH event for 2019, so please consider participating in this high-visibility community service program!

For more information on the ODOT AAH program, visit: http://www.dot.state.oh.us/Divisions/Operations/Maintenance/Pages/AdoptAHighway.aspx.


All volunteers will be trained in safety before going out onto the highway, and must comply with the following requirements:

1. Before attending, watch this safety video created by ODOT: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qwTaEDNNFLA&feature=youtu.be.
2. Sign a waiver of liability for ODOT before or on the morning of the event.
3. Participate in a review of safety procedures before going onto the interchange.

We will meet in the Home Depot parking lot (6333 Cleveland Ave, just south of the I270 Exit 27) at 9:00 AM.

All participants must be 12 years of age or older. Volunteers between the ages of 12 and 17 must have a parent or guardian sign a special release form. Please contact the event host at [masked] if you are bringing a minor.

As we will be on the side of a busy highway, volunteers should wear loose fitting, brightly colored clothing, long pants, gloves, and comfortable work boots or shoes. ODOT will provide safety vests, trash bags, trash pickers, and road safety signs.

The event will be rescheduled if it's raining that morning.

Thank you for your participation!
