Many thanks to Amanda Fox and Doug Jackson for volunteering at the Adopt-a-Highway cleanup this morning—their first time at a USRC highway cleanup. We collected 6 bags of trash and misc. other items on the I-74 exit 172 east-bound entrance ramp. We hit the jackpot (of sorts), finding 10 bottles of urine (thank you, truckers) in one spot! Yesterday and this afternoon I worked on the west-bound exit ramp and collected 9 bags (and many more pee bottles). There is still a lot of trash to pick up, but we put a big dent in it.
Our next scheduled cleanup is on Sunday, March 20 when we will clean IL-47 from I-74 to CR-2425N.
