Adopt-A-Highway volunteers enjoy banner year cleaning up Riverton-area highways

The view from Riverton-area highways improved in 2018 as hundreds of Adopt-A-Highway volunteers cleaned their two-mile highway sections.

In it’s 29th year, Wyoming’s Adopt‑A‑Highway program has nearly 1,000 participating groups in Wyoming.

Riverton-area groups include: Riverton Girl Scouts, Central Wyoming College Student Senate, Riverton Elks Lodge 1693, Daniels Family, Fremont County Democrats, Rocky Mountain Oncology, First Interstate Bank, Fremont Chapter NSDAR, Trinity Lutheran School, Riverton Lions Club, Morton-Kinnear Volunteer Fire Department, Devon Energy, and St. Stephen’s Indian School-National Honor Society.

“We really appreciate the volunteers who work to clean up highways in Northwest Wyoming,” said Robin Clapp, Adopt-A-Highway coordinator/maintenance foreman for the Wyoming Department of Transportation in Riverton. “These volunteers provide an invaluable service in helping to keep Wyoming beautiful. We really appreciate this volunteer service.”

Volunteers providing this public service range from retired people to elementary school children. Groups represent fraternal, civic and social clubs, youth groups, employee and professional organizations, schools, churches, government agencies and families.

Signs identifying the groups are posted at each end of their adopted highway section, and WYDOT supplies safety brochures, orange vests and trash bags to the volunteers for each cleanup.

Anyone in Park, Fremont, Hot Springs, Washakie and Big Horn counties interested in adopting a highway section should contact WYDOT at (307) 568-3400.
