Since 1988, Alabama
PALS has partnered with the Alabama Department of
Transportation to coordinate the
Adopt A Mile Program. Over 1,900 miles of
roadways are being cleaned and maintained by volunteers in
every corner of Alabama
. This statewide program is truly a testament to the saying
"We Are Making A Difference."
Adopt A Mile signs with the
participating group name are provided through ALDOT, as well as trash bags for
each cleanup. All applications and forms are sent to the PALS office for processing. Online applications can be filled out by going to ALPALS.ORG (you are here). Upon completeion of all paperwork, PALS print the Adopt A Mile signs and coordinates the erection of signs through the respective ALDSOT District office.
If the sign is to be erected on a State or US Highway, ALDOT will erect the sign for the adoptee. If the mile is on a county road or highway, ALDOT provides the sign, but theerecting of the sign is the responsibility of the respective county.
All signs, safety vests, bags and posts are
provided at no cost to each adoptee.
The participation in this and other
volunteer programs save the taxpayers of
millions of dollars each year in cleanup costs.
