ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet
says volunteers will be out in force beginning June 6 for the
state's annual summer scrub.
The roadside cleanup project lasts through June 12.
Acting Transportation Secretary Mike Hancock says the Cabinet
appreciates the efforts of Adopt-a-Highway volunteers, who help
keep highways and communities litter-free.
More than 1,000 groups participate in Kentucky's Adopt-a-Highway
program, which was established in 1988. Volunteers clean about
8,000 miles of roadsides each year.
