The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) District 3 Adopt-A-Highway Program honored the Yuba City Moose Lodge #1204 with their “2008 Volunteer of the Year” award for the group’s outstanding efforts in keeping a portion of Highway 99 in Sutter County clean.
The award was presented at the Yuba City Moose Lodge Family Center on June 7 at 10 a.m. just after the group returned from their monthly litter removal. They have been picking up litter along Highway 99 from the junction of Highway 20 to the Pease Road overcrossing since the site was adopted on May 12, 2003.
Caltrans launched the Adopt-A-Highway Program in October 1989. The Program has more than 4,100 participating volunteer and sponsor groups, providing the Department and taxpayers with services valued at more than $15 million each year.
Caltrans is a department within the Business, Transportation and Housing Agency that operates and maintains California’s transportation system under the direction of Secretary Dale Bonner and Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.
