Adopt-A-Highway is a public service program providing volunteers an opportunity to help keep Chisago County looking clean for all residents and visitors. Volunteer groups are designated a specific area of roadway and are responsible for keeping the area of roadway clean. Groups are asked to clean the area at least two times a year, but are welcome to do it more frequently than that.
Anyone working within the road right-of-way is required to wear an ANSI-compliant reflective vest. The Public Works Department provides trash bags and safety vests for each group.
There will be a recognition sign installed on all segments of Adopt-A-Highway roads. This sign specifically thanks the group involved for helping to keep roads and ditches clean.
For additional Adopt-A-Highway information and to arrange a time to pick up your bags/vests, contact Tami Fairbanks by calling 651-213-8703.
