GVR & ADOPT-A-HIGHWAY
Next Litter Pickup: Saturday, March 7, 2015 @ 8am
GVR and the nonprofit GVR Foundation have partnered with Arizona Department of Transportation’s Adopt-A-Highway program. Currently we have permits for three sections, two one-mile sections on I-19 and a mile along the East Frontage Road.
Recently, ADOT installed signage at our Adopt a Highway locations. ADOT mistakenly issued a permit for the gore zone at the Frontage Road intersection at Continental Road, an area they deem unsafe for volunteers. ADOT reviewed their list of available pick-up areas on the Frontage Road and asked us to change our clean-up section to mile marker posts 37 to 38, and to include both sides of the East Frontage Road to make it safer for our volunteers.
This is a great opportunity for GVR members and staff to contribute to keeping our community beautiful. Our volunteers have picked up more than 60 bags of trash since the first litter pick-up on November 1, 2014.
To find out more about how you can join in on all the fun, please contact Melanie Stephenson at email@example.com for more information.
