Environmental Programs

Environment Programs as the name implies, mainly launched to look after the environmental beauty of Georgia. Some of the Environmental programs include:
  • Adopt-A-Highway Program
  • Air Quality Program
  • Landscape Program
  • Litter Prevention Program
  • Wildflower Program

Adopt-A-Highway Program

Adopt-A-Highway Program is a partnership between the Georgia Department of Transportation and Keep Georgia Beautiful. This Program enrolls citizen volunteers' help to
  • Remove litter from the roadsides of the state
  • Planting and establishing trees or wildflowers
  • Removing graffiti and Controlling vegetation.
This program also promotes civic responsibility and pride. Roadside litter also poses a serious threat to motorists and wildlife.

Air Quality Program

  • Clean Air Campaign is mainly launched to reduce air pollution mainly happens because of the emission of gas in air.
  • The main cause of pollution is the emission of such gases from the car, trucks, buses, and off-road vehicles.
  • Clean air campaign teaches the people to do carpool, walking to the nearest places instead of travelling in a vehicle and also it insists us to tell others the idea and make them follow it.
  • The two pollutants which mainly affect human health is ozone and particle pollution.
  • Research conducted in Georgia shows a great increase in asthma, attacks, lung cancer etc.
  • Particle pollution can occur year-round whereas Ozone occurs mostly during sunny season

Litter Prevention Program

Litter prevention is a main issue of civic pride. Researchers have shown that litter is an output of individual behavior by choosing to litter or being casual in the handling of waste. And once litter is on the ground, it catches the attention of more litter. A clean community can discourage littering and improve community appearance and quality of life.

WildFlower Program

Introduction of Wildflowers on the medians of highways may keeps away the tension and stress of the drivers and makes their mind calm which may also act as a main criterion for preventing accidents.
GDOT's Wildflower Program has produced a multicolored roadside experience that gives Georgians a sense of pride and another fine reason for the visitors to visit Georgia.

Safety Programs

Safety programs are mainly organized to reduce the fatality count, accidents happens in work zone and railroads etc. in Georgia. Some of the Environmental programs include:
  • Remove litter from the roadsides of the state
  • Planting and establishing trees or wildflowers
  • Removing graffiti and Controlling vegetation.

Median Installation Program

Median Installation is launched to reduce accident and fatality count, lessening of congestion, more uniform traffic flow, pedestrian refuge and landscaping, community revitalization opportunities etc. Numerous studies specify that medians save lives and improve traffic flow.

Work Zone Safety Program

The key element of this campaign is to tell motorists that they are more likely to be killed or injured in work zone accidents than employees or contract workers. Our role in a work zone:
  • We have to slow down when we see an orange cone.
  • Tailgating should not be done in the work zones.
  • Reading all the signs assist in safely directing motorists through the work zone.
  • While driving try to avoid getting distracted.

Transportation Programs

Congestion Reduction Program

GDOT came in with a Congestion Reduction idea to reduce congestions on the road which happens during traffic overflow and also to avoid accidents and occurrence of fatalities.
