SE Contact Us: Adopt-a-Highway

Adopter groups include commercial and private enterprises, civic and non-profit organizations, families and individuals. MoDOT spends about $6 million annually to remove litter from more than 385,000 acres of right of way along 34,000 state highway miles. Adopters perform about $1 million a year in litter cleanup and beautification efforts. Every area kept free of litter by adopters allows MoDOT to devote resources to other much-needed tasks. 

Current adopters can report their activities here.
