Adopt-A-Roadway Program
The Town of Oro Valley Adopt-A-Roadway Program was established in January 2000, and is modeled after the successful Adopt-A-Roadway/Highway programs by the State of Arizona and Pima County Department of Transportation. The Town of Oro Valley’s program is designed to help beautify our roadways. Volunteer groups participating in this program save taxpayers $250-$460 per mile cleaned, saving thousands of dollars. By adopting a roadway, civic and other non-profit organizations help generate civic pride in their community, creating economic benefits to citizens of the Town.

How to Participate
Interested residents and organizations of Oro Valley should contact the Adopt-A-Roadway Coordinator at 520-229-5070. The program involves significant physical work, requiring cleanups to be completed eight times during the two-year permit.
