Caltrans & CHP Quarterly Litter Enforcement Day
Wednesday, September 21, 2016
CALTRANS – Hayward Mayor Barbara Halliday will participate in the California Highway Patrol Quarterly Litter Enforcement Day to increase public awareness of the litter pick-up and enforcement efforts on Wednesday, September 21, 2016.
In 2015, 153,000 cubic yards of litter were picked up on the highway system statewide, costing $76.5 million. Caltrans crews in the nine Bay Area counties will pick up litter along Bay Area highways.
Hayward Mayor Barbara Halliday and the CHP Commercial Mobile Road Enforcement units will focus on litter enforcement to educate drivers to tarp loads.
Caltrans will work at locations around the Bay Area, including the following:
Alameda County: I-880 between Washington exit and Marina Blvd exit.
Contra Costa County: SR-4 between the Morello exit and Pachecho exit
Toll Bridges: Bay Bridge, San Mateo Bridge, Dumbarton Bridge, and the Richmond Bridge.
Specialty Regions: Devil’s Slide Tunnels and the Caldecott Tunnel.
Community members can adopt a highway through the Caltrans Adopt-A-Highway Program.
