The St. Patrick’s Knights of Columbus made their semi-annual pilgrimage to their stretch of County Road P58 south of Perry Sunday afternoon in order to walk the ditch and remove litter in the Dallas County Adopt-A-Roadway program.

Knights have been cleaning up after errant area litterers since the Adopt a Roadway program was started in 1999. There are currently 26 dedicated groups sponsoring 56 miles of Dallas County roads, with 126 miles of hard-surfaced roads still available for adoption.

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.
