FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


California Coastal Cleanup Day Celebrates 22nd Anniversary

WHAT: Adopt-A-Highway Litter Clean Up on State Route 168 Between Shaw Avenue and Bullard Avenue
WHEN: Saturday, September 16th, 8:00 A.M. - 11:00 A.M.

The 22nd Annual California Coastal Cleanup Day will be celebrated locally where the cities of Fresno and Clovis meet. Utilizing the Department of Transportation’s Adopt-A-Highway Program, Caltrans District 6 Volunteers will join hundreds of thousands of participants around the nation clearing debris from our highways. District 6 volunteers will be out in force picking up litter on their adopted section of Route 168 between Shaw and Bullard Avenues, this Saturday, September 16th.

Each September, California Cleanup Day is held in conjunction with the Coastal Cleanup Day bringing together volunteers to collect trash and debris around our local roadways, communities, rivers and lakes. Coastal Cleanup Day is a partnership effort between the Coastal Commission, non-profit groups, cities and counties throughout the state, and is part of the International Coastal Cleanup organized by The Ocean Conservancy.

Motorists are reminded to drive with extra care through Adopt-A-Highway sections and to “Slow for the Cone Zone” while travelling in all construction and maintenance areas.

For additional information on this project, as well as others in your area, please contact the Public Information Office at the number listed above. Traffic Information is also available by telephone through the Caltrans Highway Information Network at 1-800-427-ROAD (7623).
