Adopt A Highway Program
The Scott County Adopt A Highway program began in 1991 as a way for citizens to serve their community and protect the environment. Adopt A Highway volunteers currently clean almost 400 centerline miles of Scott County roadways.
The volunteer group agrees to pick up litter on a segment of county highway selected in consultation with the Scott County Highway Engineer. The recommended length is two miles.
The volunteer group agrees to a 3-year commitment to clean up their segment of roadway at least twice a year, in the spring and fall. The Physical Development Department provides safety vests and trash bags. The maintenance crew picks up and disposes of filled bags and other items.
Scott County agrees to erect a highway sign at no cost to the group to recognize the group's clean-up efforts. The name on the sign shall be limited to two lines of eighteen characters (including spaces). The county reserves the right to approve and/or edit names or acronyms. No logos, website addresses or telephone numbers are allowed on the signs.
All new Adopt A Highway groups receive free 30" by 24" signs. Current groups will have this new sign configuration phased in over a 10-year period.
Scott County currently has eight roads open for adoption for Spring of 2015:
County Highway 2 from I35 to the county line,
County Highway 15 from County Highway 2 to Columbus Avenue,
County Highway 23 from County Highway 86 to County Highway 2,
County Highway 56 from Fairlawn to 1 mile south on 23,
County Highway 64 from County Highway 89 to Xanadu Avenue,
County Highway 76 from County Highway 66 to County Highway 59,
County Highway 79 from County Highway 10 to State Highway 282,
and County Highway 89 from County Highway 2 to County Highway 64.
