The schedule for the annual Michigan Department of Transportation Adopt-A-Highway program has been changed due to persistent snowbanks and late-season snowstorms.
The ongoing pickup in the southern half of the Lower Peninsula will be extended through April 29. The section’s clean-up period started last weekend, though cold and rain prevented any group from taking part in the opening weekend.
The first Adopt-A-Highway pickup of 2018 for the northern Lower Peninsula and Upper Peninsula will be later, from May 5 to 13.
Volunteers pick up litter three times each year. Statewide, there will be a summer pickup from July 14 to 22 and a fall pickup from Sept. 22 to 30.
