Adopt-A-Highway Program

Adopt-a-Highway clean-up coming soon

Community and volunteer groups can adopt sections of state highway as part of the Michigan Department of Transportation Adopt-A-Highway program. The annual spring cleanup along roadsides will be held across lower Michigan April 17-25. The first pickup for the northern Lower Peninsula and Upper Peninsula will be May 1-9. Volunteers pick up litter three times each year. Statewide pickups are also slated for July 17-25 and Sept. 25-Oct. 3. Groups are asked to adopt a section for at least two years, and Adopt-A-Highway signs bearing a group’s name are posted along the stretch of adopted highway. There is no fee to participate.  

Norway Township will strive to serve its constituents with dependable and efficient
service. The highest standards and lawfully executed service is our goal.
