Northfield's "Green Bay Packer Fans" Adopt County Road 23

Green Bay Packer Fans

Tonight is the NFL season opener, and a Vikings fan driving into Northfield on County Road 23 cannot help but notice who has "adopted" the highway.

Green Bay Packer Fans


According to the Minnesota Department of Transportation, "community groups, churches, individuals or businesses" are eligible to adopt a highway, and must agree to pick up litter on both sides for at least two years. There are no rules prohibiting Packer fans from greening our highways.

Who, I wonder, are Northfield's "Green Bay Packer Fans" going to root for tonight?

The Vikings play the 2010 Superbowl champion New Orleans Saints at the Superdome tonight at 7:30 PM CST. The game will be broadcast on NBC.

Go Vikings!
