    I know this has been brought up before, but it's pick-up season. In fact, we already missed the first period. I noticed today that a stretch of 54/83 going into Birch Run is available.

    Is anybody interested in participating if MOC adopts this stretch?

    I just want to get some idea of the interest, so I can talk it over with the board, etc... and submit the application. The next pick-up is July 11-19 and then September 12-20.

    as i explained in the post i made about this.... anyone can adopt a highway... so long as YOU meet the requirements... if i remember correctly you have to have 6 or more individuals on the roster that is submitted to MDOT. everyone must have a vest, so on and so on... unless they changed the pick up dates for the freeway trash... if you miss more than 3 pickups in a row... you will loose your highway... i suggest you make sure the individuals who is on the roster are your first draft pics... the most reliable... everyone else can follow.... i will have to bump my thread back up...

    I'm pretty sure you can adopt any 2 mile stretch of a state highway that isn't already taken. They put signs up if it is a "new" stretch to be adopted.

    Ok guys time to get moving on this. We need volunteers to make this happen.

    Our goal is to have a few different sections of road. For starters one in the SE region and one in the SW region. For the SE I'm looking at the I-75/ 696 area 2nd option would be the 696/275 area. We need a minimum of three people but I would like to get 10 in each region.



    I'd like to get the form in by early next week so.....

    Volunteers?

    The one in July might conflict with the Michigander, if I go on it this year. But I'm good to go for September.

    The complete and utter truth can be challenged from every direction and it will always hold up. Accordingly there are few greater displays of illegitimacy than to attempt to impede free thought and communication.

    Still waiting for more volunteers if we can get one or two more firm commitments in the SE region that should be good. Anyone?

    What about the SW region?

    I have an appointment on Monday to call and discuss this with the MDOT regional guy for the SW area.
    Anything I post may be my opinion and not the law... you are responsible to do your own verification.

    Blackstone (1753-1765) maintains that "the law holds that it is better that ten guilty persons escape than that one innocent suffer."
