The state Department of Transportation is seeking volunteer participation in the Adopt-A-Highway program from public and private organizations to help keep Kaua‘i highways beautiful and litter free.
Two-mile stretches on Kaumuali‘i Highway, Halewili Road, Walalo Road, Waimea Canyon Drive, Koke‘e Road, and Kuamo‘o Road, with locations around the island, are currently available for volunteer support. Community groups and businesses can adopt a highway by agreeing to remove litter from a section of a highway at least four times a year for a minimum of two years.
Volunteers are provided high-visiblity vests, trash bags, and safety information for clean ups. State DOT road crews then remove filled trash bags and heavy or hazardous items from roadsides. Organizations participating in this public service program are also prominently recognized on highway on highway signs bearing their names along their adopted highways.
For more information, contact the Highways Division, Kaua‘i District Office, at 241-3035 , or visit the Highways Division Web site at www.hawai’i.gov/dot/highways/Adopt-Highway.htm
