Let's clean our Adopt a Highway mile!
Free pizza at Guido's in Dewey to everyone that helps!
The Adopt a Highway Program provides a way for individuals, organizations, or businesses to help maintain sections of the roadside within the Arizona State Highway System.
Our group has taken on the responsibility of helping our community by participating in the Adopt-a-Highway program. We have been assigned a mile on Hwy 69 in Dewey and we clean it at least 4 times per year.
Meet in the The Village of Lynx Creek. Entrance to Quailwood golf course. Park on North Village Way, which is north of and parallel to the highway. Look for our "meetup" sign when you turn into the entrance to Quailwood golf course (at The Villages).
At one end of the mile is the Quailwood golf course, at The Villages at Lynx Creek Community, and the other end of the mile is near Leff-T's Steakhouse and Guido's Pizza (near the Family Dollar store).
The mile is from milepost 282 to 283.
We will clean for about 90 minutes.
>>> I'll bring donuts and bottled water. <<<
No sandals or "flip-flops" (safety FIRST!)
Will we start at milepost 283 on the north side and work our way East to milepost 282, then turn around and come back on the south side.
ADOT provides safety training, trash bags, and two signs to be used at each end of their adopted section. I will pass along the safety information that I received. The main thing is to not walk out on the highway and get hit by a car.
We need to wear the safety vests. I will bring these. These have been provided by A.D.O.T.
We have sticks with nails on the end to pick up the trash.
Children (13 and younger) and pets are NOT allowed at this event for safety reasons.
For our efforts, the group's name has been put on a sign at each end of the mile.
I hope we get lots of members to come out. We have fun and it is a chance to do something nice for our community.
Mark this on your calendar and let's all meet up to participate in the Adopt-a-Highway program.
