Thousands of volunteers with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet’s (KYTC) Adopt-a-Highway program will give the Commonwealth’s roadsides a “Spring Clean” from March 19-25 during the first cleanup outing of 2018.
As Adopt-a-Highway groups remove unsightly litter to make way for spring flowers, green grass and budding trees, KYTC reminds motorists that when Adopt-a-Highway volunteers are present, roadsides are active work zones. Whether it is Spring Clean week or Work Zone Safety Awareness Week, which will occur April 9-13, drivers are expected to slow down and to travel through work zones with extra caution.
