The Adopt-A-Highway program is a tax-deductible opportunity for proud New Yorkers to give back to their community by ensuring clean and beautiful roadways in the New York City area.

Highway can be adopted by individuals, companies, or organizations (but not political candidates and campaigns). Segments can also be adopted in memory of an individual. Signs acknowledging the sponsor will be placed on the adopted roadway segment; however, the Adopt-A-Highway Program is not a forum for advertising or public discourse.

Adopting a highway is an easy way to make a visible impact on your community and show your pride in being a New Yorker.

All highways under NYC DOT jurisdiction are included in the Adopt-A-Highway program. See the list of currently available segments (pdf)
