Nebraska's Adopt-A-Highway Program
The first Adopt-A-Highway program in the nation began in Texas in 1985, and is now international in scope. Nebraska's program officially began in April of 1990, through the efforts of Gretna State Senator, Emil Beyer.
The program is currently sponsored by the Nebraska Department of Roads. More info is available by calling 402-479-4843.
In the past years, the Adopt-a-Highway program has grown to cover about one-quarter of the State’s 10,000 miles of roads and currently 972 groups have adopted a section of Nebraska roadsides as their own.
The "Great Nebraska Trash Off " is an annual event, usually held in April/May. This marathon period of cleaning Nebraska highways generates lots of fun and competition between groups, as well as good publicity for the program and those who participate.
