Heads up for Des Moines drivers, Saturday

The Iowa Department of Transportation is trying something new, Saturday morning, weather permitting.

Craig Bargfrede, from the DOT, tells WHO Radio News, about 50 workers will be along I-235 in Des Moines, picking up trash in their bright orange vests from 7:45 to 10am.

Again, it's as long as the weather cooperates.  

Craig says this is the first time they've gotten all the groups to tackle a stretch of roadway like this.

He adds, about a third of the state's roads they're responsible for are cared for by volunteers from the Adopt-A-Highway program.  That shakes out to about 1,250 groups.

They're always looking for more help!  Click here to learn more.
