On May 4, several HEI employees along with their family (and some furry friends) volunteered to clean up a stretch of highway ditches along US 83 north of Bismarck, ND, through the North Dakota Department of Transportation’s (NDDOT) Adopt-A-Highway program
The team filled 90 garbage bags along the ditches of US 83.
“I know picking up garbage isn’t always a lot of fun, but the results were something to be proud of,” states Brad Pfeifer, who organized HEI’s volunteer team.
The team filled 90 garbage bags along the three-mile stretch of highway from RP 93.5 to RP 96.5. The NDDOT provided 45 orange bags and after those ran out the team bought 45 more black garbage bags to fill before they completed their cleanup.
“The team did an outstanding job, the roadside for those three miles looks great!” states Pfeifer.
HEI will clean this stretch of highway for the next three years with their next cleanup event scheduled for July.
Volunteers got a good workout in this day. One employee, Travis Johnson, logged 26,651 steps!
