Adopt-A-Highway

 
Road Warriors

Road Warriors

The Friends of Edgewood organization has adopted the 1.5-mile stretch of northbound I-280 adjacent to Edgewood. This segment was originally adopted by Ken Seydel in 1989, and he has now graciously transferred the responsibility to Dave Hershey.

Volunteers, known affectionately as the “Road Warriors,” don their hats, gloves, and vests, and comb this section of roadside, usually on the first Saturday of even-numbered months and the first Sunday of odd-numbered months. See our calendar or events page for specific dates, since they may not follow this schedule to avoid holidays.  They meet at the Edgewood Road Park-and-Ride lot at 8:30 a.m.

Once you’ve viewed a training video, you too can join one of our morning sessions. For training and equipment, or more information, first time volunteers should contact Dave Hershey at adoptahighway-coordinator@friendsofedgewood.org before joining the group.
