Adopt-A-Road Program

About the Program


The Grand Traverse County Road Commission has been involved in a cooperative effort with local groups and families to retain the natural beauty of our area since 1991. We currently have 188 total routes with many left to adopt!. Groups are able to adopt a road for 2 or more years and perform 3 trash pickups per year along a 2 mile section of county road. An annual safety meeting among volunteers is also required. The Road Commission will provide 2 recognition signs, trash bags, vests, and trash pickup after the route has been cleaned. 

Applications


You can fill out an Adopt-A-Road Program Application (PDF) to apply for the open route of your choice. Thanks to all the groups and individuals who participate in keeping Grand Traverse County clean and beautiful!
