ORCOBA I-84 Rooster Rock Adopt-A-Highway Clean-up

We’ve set a tentative date for our next I-84 Rooster Rock Adopt-A-Highway Clean-up:

Saturday, April 5 – 8:00am - Noon-ish

ORCOBA’s section is the two-mile stretch of Interstate 84 between the Corbett exit, eastward to the Rooster Rock exit, approximately a half-hour east of downtown Portland.

Litter bags, drinking water and safety vests will be provided; participants are encouraged to bring along their own work gloves, sturdy footwear and clothing appropriate for the day’s weather.

Participants are invited to congregate beforehand at Shari’s Restaurant, off of the Troutdale exit (#17), around 7:00am. From there we will drive east to the Corbett exit a few miles east, park on the side road, assemble and set out for the cleanup. Depending on the number of participants, we may elect to divide into two or more teams.

First-time participants to highway cleanups are required to complete a short safety orientation and sign the necessary paperwork, prior to performing the cleanup. Please contact us at if you are interested in participating but need the orientation, and we can make the safety video available for viewing. Prior highway cleanup participants, as well as those who have not yet participated but have already viewed the safety video, do not need the orientation.

Updates will be posted throughout the coming days. In the meantime, please contact us at if you are interested and are planning on participating, and if you need to receive the orientation, so we can get an idea as to the number of potential participants.

More to follow soon…thank you!
