You can help clean up area highways.Groups or organizations who would like to adopt a section of highway for litter prevention are encouraged to do so by the Texas Department of Transportation.

The West Bowie County Rotary Club recently cleaned up a section of Highway 8 near New Boston. 12 volunteers picked up 29 bags of trash in about a two hour period.

Anyone who is interested in adopting a section of highway should contact Stephanie Farhney with TxDOT at (903) 799-1202.
