Caltrans and the CHP will work together in a major effort against highway litter starting today, June 19th, 2014.

Caltrans maintenance crews in the nine Bay Area counties will focus their efforts throughout the day cleaning litter alongside the highways.

The California Highway Patrol Commercial Mobile Road Enforcement unitswill also focus on litter enforcement, and educating drivers to cover their loads.

Caltrans employees will be work at various locations around the Bay Area including the following:

Alameda County
Highway 580 Hollis St/Mandela Pkwy to Wood Street

Contra Costa County
Highway 4 from Highway 680 to Willow Pass Road

Marin County
Highway 101- Highway 1 to Sir Francis Drake Blvd.

Santa Clara County
Highway 101 from Highway 880 to Great America Pkwy

Caltrans is partnering with several cities around the Bay Area, and encouraging individuals, organizations and businesses to join them in litter abatement and recycling activities in your local community from Thursday, June 19, 2014 through Thursday, June 26, 2014.

We should have the CHP spent a portion of every shift picking up trash on the highways.

What about the various “This section maintained by —-” signs that I see on the highway? Maybe they could actually do some of the maintenance pickup too?

It was explained to me some time ago This section cleaned up by…………
does not mean they are out there doing it. Safety problem. They simply pay into the state/caltrans fund for clean up.

Anyone know more? How much do they need to donate?

Sure, David, that’s a great use of resources of POST-certified and sworn officers.
