Highway cleanup crews will be out next week

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - It's back to the highways for Kentucky's volunteers who help keep the roadsides litter-free.

Next week is Adopt-a-Highway Fall Sweep Week, and volunteers from the more than 800 groups that participate in the program will be out cleaning up their stretches of roadway.

The Transportation Cabinet established the program in 1988. The cabinet spends about $5 million and 200,000 workers hours annually to remove 96,000 bags of litter from the state's roadsides. The agency says volunteers clean some 5,100 miles of roadside every year.

Groups that are interested in participating can find more information at http://adopt-a-highway.ky.gov .
