Volunteers Pitching In For Adopt-A-Highway Program
Chillicothe – With the arrival of warm weather, volunteers across the state are pitching in to assist in the Ohio Department of Transportation’s Adopt-A-Highway program, and the Lucasville Masons in Scioto County are among those doing their part.
“The members of the Lucasville Masonic Lodge have had a longstanding commitment to the Adopt-A-Highway program, and we appreciate their support to help our Scioto County crews not only maintain a clean highway system, but also promote roadway beautification,” said ODOT District 9 Deputy Director James Brushart.
In their first outing this year, John Kennedy, Curt Thacker and Bill Gundlah of Masonic Lodge No. 465 collected 7 bags of litter along a two-mile section of U.S. Route 23 on April 18. The Lucasville Masons have been members of the Adopt-A-Highway program since 1994, and the lodge was awarded the Gold Star designation in the spring of 2005.
For any group participating in the Adopt-A-Highway program, ODOT will provide volunteers with trash bags and safety vests at no cost, and the department will post a sign inscribed with the group's name within the adopted section of highway.
Those interested in becoming part of the Adopt-A-Highway program in Scioto County should contact ODOT's highway maintenance facility by calling (740) 259-2071.
