Road cleanup to be held Nov. 14

The Mathews Community Fall Roadside Cleanup is scheduled to take place from 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Nov. 14, with a rain date of the following Saturday, Nov. 21.

Each year, the Mathews County Visitor and Information Center holds spring and fall roadside cleanups and invites Adopt a Highway volunteers and community groups to work together to clean up county roads.

Groups are required to follow social distance guidelines and wear their masks when not able to be six feet apart. They will meet between 8 and 9 a.m. at the Visitor Center, 239 Main Street, to sign in and receive safety and route information and equipment.

Coffee and breakfast-to-go will be available, and nets, safety vests, trash bags and gloves will be provided.

Groups can choose a road they would like to focus on, or MCVIC will have a list of high priority roads.

At noon, volunteers will head back to the Visitor Center to return equipment and report the number of bags they collected.
