Keep Louisiana Clean and Green!

La DOTD's Adopt-a-Road Program enlists volunteers to remove litter and debris from state and federal roadsides. While saving taxpayer dollars, the program provides recognition for participating groups and organizations, promotes civic responsibility and pride, makes the public aware of the problem and helps keep Louisiana Clean and Green!
