Cass County recognizes the importance both environmentally and aesthetically of litter-free highways. Under the Adopt-A-Highway Program, the County permits local groups to volunteer their efforts to maintain designated segments of County Highways litter-free. In addition to the aesthetic benifeits of cleaner and more beautiful roadsides, participants help to prevent potential pollutants from entering the waterways.
The segments will typically be three miles in length, but may be adjusted by the County Engineer between two and four miles. The County will provide and install signs at each end of the roadway segment, limiting the funding to five segments (10 signs) per year with no more than 15 segments County-wide. Requests will be treated on a first come, first serve basis with each segment requireing adoption for a minimum of two years.
