Adopt-A-Highway Gets Boost From PVHS FFA
Chillicothe - The Ohio Department of Transportation District 9 is pleased to recognize the members of the Paint Valley High School Future Farmers of America for their efforts with the Adopt-A-Highway program.
On May 21, seven members from Paint Valley’s FFA collected six bags of litter along a two-mile section of U.S. Route 50. This was the group=s first outing of the year, and their participation helps the employees of the Ross County ODOT facility maintain a clean, more efficient highway
“Groups like the Paint Valley FFA do much to assist ODOT with highway beautification, and we truly appreciate their efforts,” said District 9 Deputy Director James Brushart. “In addition to promoting highway beautification, the students are also helping the maintenance crews from the Ross County facility maintain a clean highway.”
Those who picked up litter in this recent outing were Branson Leisure, Dunstin Neff, Michael Grooms, Jake Neff, James Miller, Jordan Schobelock and Wes Hurley.
The Ohio Department of Transportation provides Adopt-A-Highway groups with trash bags and safety vests at no cost. ODOT also posts a sign, inscribed with the group's name, within the adopted section of highway.
Any group that is interested in becoming involved with the Adopt-A-Highway program in Ross County should contact ODOT’s highway maintenance facility at (740) 773-3191.
