Adopt-A-Road Program

 Transportation and Development, Operations

The Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) oversees the Adopt-a-Road program which enlists volunteers to remove litter and debris from state and federal roadsides. While saving taxpayer dollars, the program provides recognition for participating groups and organizations, promotes civic responsibility and pride, makes the public aware of the problem and helps keep Louisiana Clean and Green!

Areas that can be adopted:
State and federal routes may be adopted, as well as a limited number of interstate interchanges. Check with your local DOTD District Administrator to determine which roads are available for adoption. DOTD district contact information is located on the DOTD website.

Areas that cannot be adopted:

  • areas that are already adopted
  • areas where access is unsafe
  • areas where the road shoulders are too narrow
  • areas where visibility is restricted
  • areas of heavy traffic or traffic is too close
  • areas where construction is underway or planned

How to Participate

  2. Contact the appropriate DOTD district in order to verify availability of the area(s) to be adopted.
  3. Fill out an application and submit to appropriate DOTD District Administrator.
