Each year, the Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA) spends millions of dollars to remove litter and debris from our roadways, which can create safety and environmental hazards for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians. Litter removal also forces SHA staff to commit time, money and manpower to this effort when they should be concentrating on other highway safety activities.
The Maryland Department of Transportation’s State Highway Administration (SHA) Corporate Sponsorship Program allows corporate sponsors to sponsor sections of Maryland roadways. The Sponsor enters into an agreement with a Maintenance Provider for litter and debris removal from the sponsored segment. The Maintenance Providers are responsible for the removal of trash from the sponsored segments of roadways.
As part of the highway sponsorship, the sponsoring group will receive an acknowledgement sign with their corporate logo along their segment. Maryland is joining numerous other states – including Delaware, Connecticut, New Jersey, California and Colorado in this national effort to reduce litter along its roads.
