SAULT STE. MARIE — The Chippewa County Democratic Party has adopted a stretch of Interstate 75 beginning near M-28, traveling two miles south.

“The party is currently seeking volunteers to help clean the shoulders of I-75 July 18-24,” said Allison Youngs, Chair of the Chippewa County Democratic Party.  Youngs continues, “Our party has a strong commitment to environmental protection.  This project will help ensure our county and state is Pure Michigan.”

Michigan Department of Transportation’s website says “Adopt-A-Highway is a MDOT program designed to keep the state’s highway roadsides clean and attractive.  Participants adopt both sides of a section of state highway roadside to clean up over a two-year period.”
