ADOT is holding its annual Adopt a Highway Appreciation Day on Saturday, July 16 at Chase Field in downtown Phoenix. The volunteer groups being recognized for their outstanding efforts will be treated to a ballgame as the Arizona Diamondbacks take on the Los Angeles Dodgers. This event will give ADOT the opportunity to publicly acknowledge all 1,500 Adopt a Highway groups with nearly 11,000 volunteers from across Arizona.
