Sponsor A Highway

UDOT has the Sponser A Highway Program as a way for private businesses to contract with certified vendor to clean up portions of highways.

The Sponsor a Highway Program is a no-cost to the state contract that allows private companies to sponsor a Contractor to maintain segments of eligible roadway. The Contractor will install a standard sign along each sponsored roadway segment with the corresponding sponsor’s logo attached to the sign.
