|Fresno-The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) in partnership with the California Highway Patrol (CHP), the City of Fresno and various Adopt-A-Highway volunteer groups will hold the Spring Anti-Litter Cleanup Event.
This event is scheduled for 10:00 am on Tuesday, May 8, 2007 at the Save Mart Center parking lot closest to State Route 168/Shaw Avenue.
The Anti-Litter Enforcement and Trash-Off Event is part of a statewide effort that will focus on reducing the litter on the highways and educating the public.

Immediately following the press conference, Caltrans District 6 employees, ALL non-emergency Caltrans Maintenance Staff and Adopt-A-Highway Volunteer Groups will continue their litter clean-up efforts along a section of State Route 168 between Shaw and Bullard avenues and other sections of highways that have been identified.
