Bette Midler has joined a campaign to combat litter along California’s highways, offering to adopt and clean up a two-mile section of the Ventura Freeway.
Signs marking Midler’s stretch of highway will be posted soon, said Russell Snyder, spokesman for the state Department of Transportation.
Midler was the 236th Adopt-aHighway volunteer, Snyder said Friday.
The singer-actress will hire a company to collect roadside trash and clean off graffiti, Snyder said. Her portion of the freeway will be marked at either end with signs saying: “Litter Removal Next 2 Miles, Bette Midler.”
