After the novel coronavirus sidelined them in 2020, the St. Patrick’s Knights of Columbus returned to their semi-annual pilgrimage Sunday afternoon in order to walk the ditches on a stretch of County Road P58 south of Perry and remove litter in the Dallas County Adopt-A-Roadway program.
Knights have been cleaning up after errant area litterers since 2008 as part of the Adopt a Roadway program. There are currently 26 dedicated groups sponsoring 56 miles of Dallas County roads, some dating to the program’s founding in 1999.
There are some 126 miles of hard-surfaced roads still available for adoption in Dallas County. For more information about the Adopt-A-Roadway program or to sponsor a section of roadway, visit the website or contact the Dallas County Integrated Roadside Vegetation Management Roadside Biologist Jim Uthe at 515-993-5868 ext. 209.
