Caltrans Adopt-A-Highway program Cerritos segments available for sponsorship

June 24, 2016

Eight segments along the 91 and 605 freeways within Cerritos are currently available for sponsorship as part of the Caltrans Adopt-A-Highway program. The program provides a unique opportunity for both volunteer and sponsor groups to promote civic responsibility and community pride.

Established in 1989, the Adopt-A-Highway program allows individuals and businesses to donate materials, equipment and services for roadside maintenance or enhancement. Adoption opportunities include litter removal, graffiti removal, vegetation control, tree planting and wildflower planting. Sponsors can also choose to hire a Caltrans-approved contractor, at the sponsor's expense, to perform litter abatement services. The average cost to maintain a segment of highway using contracted labor is approximately $425 per month.

In recognition of each sponsorship, Caltrans provides a standard sponsorship sign that is displayed along the designated highway segment. Sponsors have the option of providing an enhanced sign at their own additional expense. The sign must be approved by Caltrans and can include custom fonts, logos and colors.

For more information about adopting a freeway segment in Cerritos, please contact the Southeast Los Angeles area Caltrans Adopt-A-Highway Coordinator Shelley Bickel at (213) 897-3871 or
