The Adopt-A-Highway Program for community service groups and individuals applies to many types of highways. Our District Coordinators will work with you to find a segment of highway that is most desirable for your group.
On occasion, certain segments of highway are not suitable for volunteers because of traffic volume, shoulder size, visibility, terrain, side banks, access, frequency of pick-ups, or other safety reasons.
NDOT will let you know if a certain section of highway is adoptable for your purpose. If a section is un-adoptable, NDOT will help you identify alternative locations.
- The program was established in 1990 to allow nonpolitical organizations, corporations, volunteer groups, and individuals to participate in maintaining and enhancing Nevada’s highways through community service at no cost to the group.
- It is similar to programs in more than 40 other states.
- The program recognizes participants with commemorative signs installed at the adopted section of highway.
- The program is intended and designed to be fun and educational; promote civic responsibility, community spirit, and camaraderie; and provide an opportunity to accomplish something worthwhile, while protecting the safety of volunteer participants and motorists.
- It is designed to save taxpayer dollars.
- It is designed to operate with a minimum of red tape and with minimum supervision by NDOT.
- It is designed to allow participants to work responsibly and at their own convenience.
