Adopt-A-Road-Logo

The Texas Adopt-a-Highway program is the premier litter prevention campaign of the Texas Department of Transportation.  Following Texas’ lead in Adopt-a-Highway program, Burleson County participates with our very own Adopt-a-Road program.

Adopting a stretch of road in Burleson County is simple:

  • you agree to take charge of a stretch of road for a minimum of two years; and
  • once approved, you agree to clean your portion of the roadway at least four times per year.

The Adopt-a-Road program will post signs with your group’s name along your adopted section of road, and will provide volunteers with safety vests, litterbags and the appropriate training.  If your group decides to participate, contact the county judge’s office at 979-567-2333 or your precinct commissioner.
