Whether people are visiting Macomb County for the first time or driving our roads daily, the appearance of our roadways matters. To help keep our roadsides clean and attractive, the Macomb County Department of Roads’ Adopt-A-County Road program began over 20 years ago. Our crews are responsible for maintaining over 1,600 miles of primary and local county roads plus over 200 miles of state highways. With the never-ending struggle for funding needed for the basic maintenance of the road itself, roadside litter can become an unsightly prospect. Our Adopt-A-County Road program is a great opportunity for individuals and groups to take an active role in their community. With no costs and an easy process to get started, this program provides you and your group with a chance to make a positive environmental impact in your area, while teaching community responsibility and volunteerism to your participants.
In addition to the opportunity for your group to grow and learn and have some fun while participating in the program, our Adopt-A-County Road program provides a great way to advertise your organization’s active role in the community through roadside signage and inclusion in our map of adopted roads and list of sponsors shown on our website.
