Adopt-A-Road

Adopt-A-RoadThe City of Walker wants to work together with your group to Adopt-A-Road. This is similar to the Michigan Department of Transportation's Adopt-A-Highway Program. The Adopt-A-Road aims to involve Walker citizens in keeping their local roads clean, safe and attractive. Your group can adopt as little as one mile and as much as four miles. View the application and safety rules.
