Transportation Community Outreach

The Transportation Community Outreach office informs communities of major transportation programs and services, solicits community comment and resolves citizen issues concerning safety or service delivery needs. Adopt-A-Road volunteers help keep our neighborhoods attractive, clean, safe and litter-free by regularly removing accumulated trash from alongside more than 1,100 lane miles of adopted roadways. Cleanup efforts keep pollutants out of our waterways and help protect the water supply. Participants agree to keep roadsides litter free by removing litter at least six times a year. A list of roads available for adoption can be reviewed by clicking on the link below. Adopt-A-Road applications are reviewed by the Department of Transportation staff to ensure the requested road is adoptable under program guidelines. Applicants are generally notified within 14 business days of submitting an application whether it has been approved. Once an Adopt-A-Road program application is approved, it takes 8-12 weeks for staff to fabricated and install the sign.

Adopt-A-Spot volunteers help keep our neighborhoods attractive, clean, safe and litter-free by regularly removing accumulated trash from areas such as parks, landmarks, schools, vacant lots or public grounds. Participants agree to keep adopted spots litter free by removing trash at least 12 times a year.

Grants are available from the Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) to help communities improve the environment by beautifying public property through plantings and landscaping. MCDOT offers up to $500 in matching funds.
