Organizers expect volunteers to participate in the clean-up initiative.
"Businesses, civic groups, and even some families and individuals, families sometimes adopt a portion of a highway where a loved one has been killed in an accident" Sara George with Highway District 12 says.
Of the more then eighteen hundred miles of state roadway in district 12's seven counties, officials say more than 10 percent are adopted.
Besides the obvious benefit of a cleaner road system there are economic benefits.
Appearances by politicians on campaign stops, concerts, and more bring in people and dollars into the local economy.
But Officials are confident those appearances would decrease if people did not step up and clean-up the area.
"They are not going to come to an area that people's not taking care of the area. not that it has to be manicured. we have to live here and the type of industry we have we know there is some blemishes" Pike County Judge-Executive Wayne T. Rutherford said.
"The people who volunteer in the adopt a highway program saves the transportation cabinet and therefore the taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars by their efforts" George says.
The program runs through Saturday.
