Adopt a highway, attract an industry

February 1, 2006

Coffee County - Coffee County leaders say that's exactly what's happening there. The side of roads are covered in trash, and Department of Transportation crews can't clean them fast enough.

The Chamber of Commerce has partnered up with DOT to get more people involved in the Adopt-A-Highway program, which will hopefully bring more industry to the area.

Chamber Director Joanne Lewis says, "When you sell your community, that visual image is very important and very important in the economic realm and so the Chamber through our New Century leaders, decided to project with DOT to try to clean up our community."

If you want to participate in the Adopt-A-Highway program in Coffee County, contact the Chamber at (912)-384-1873 or the Department of Transportation.
