Thank you!

Adopt-A-Highway program has new safety video

A new safety video has been posted under "Safety Information" on the Adopt-A-Highway page on the MDOT website at www.michigan.gov/adoptahighway. The video was updated just in time for the first Adopt-A-Highway pickup of the year. All volunteers are required to view the safety video before going out on the highway. There is also an MDOT announcement about it below and you may find some useful details there too.

thanks! Kim
