Adopt-A-Highway marks 20 years
The Lake County Division of Transportation cited several groups for their involvement in its Adopt-A-Highway program, which marks its 20th year. These groups were recognized for 20 years of service: Allendale Association; Buffalo Grove Chamber of Commerce; Exchange Club of Grayslake; Lake County Court Services; Gurnee Rotary Club; Lake Bluff Open Lands; Paul's Landscaping. The program was launched in early 1993 with an initial enrollment of 37 groups and has grown to 232 groups. Last year, Adopt-A-Highway volunteers saved the county $305,000 in labor costs and removed about 225,000 pounds of trash from county highways. Visit lakecountyil.gov/transportation.
