Ellwood City Ledger – HARRISBURG — Pennsylvania Department of Transportation announced its Adopt-A-Highway activities are resuming, but volunteers must still wear masks, practice social distancing and sanitize hands. Projects to clean-up state highways were suspended as part of Pennsylvania’s efforts to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
Continued preventive measures against the spread of the virus requires volunteers to adhere to all Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and PA Department of Health guidelines while carrying out AAH activities, PennDOT said.
PennDOT will provide volunteer groups with safety vests, trash bags, work gloves, and other equipment. For safety, Pennsylvania State Police will be notified of all scheduled events and PennDOT will pick up bagged litter from the roadside.
