When the partners of Rossway Swan decided to continue their outreach into the community, one of the projects they selected was to be part of the Florida’s Adopt-A-Highway Program. As volunteers of this program, Rossway Swan entered into an agreement which commenced in 1999 with the Department of Transportation (DOT) to “adopt” a two mile section of a state highway. The law firm “adopted” the section of State Road 60 from Indian River Boulevard to State Road A-1-A along Beachland Boulevard, and under the DOT safety regulations, they don orange vests and remove litter from this location on a quarterly basis. Many miles of highways are adopted statewide by various organizations, allowing civic-minded people to make a difference in their communities. This eases the load of DOT work crews, enabling them to devote more time to other road maintenance and special highway projects. Adopt-a-Highway signs commending Rossway Swan are posted at the beginning and end of the bridge.
The Barber Bridge, which spans over the Intercoastal, attracts many spectators of the Independence Day fireworks display, and the discarded debris that is left on the bridge following the celebration is unsightly and poses an environmental hazard to the Indian River Lagoon’s ecosystem.
“We are proud to be a part of this clean-up effort program and helping to beautify our community,” comments Brad Rossway, Managing Partner of the law firm. “A contingent of our lawyers and staff come out quarterly to get the job done, and we take on the attitude of having fun while doing something positive for Vero Beach.”
For other civic-minded organizations or businesses interested in “adopting” you can reach the DOT by email at www.dot.state.fl.us/statemaintenanceoffice/aah.shtm.
