Anyone travelling on I-275 en-route to the Detroit Metropolitan Airport can notice a prominent sign put up by the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) with the name Muslim Community of Western Suburbs on it.
The Muslim Community of Western Suburbs in Michigan is taking care of keeping a two-mile stretch of a major highway clean for the past eleven years. This is under the MDOT program where any community can adopt a section of a freeway and take responsibility of keeping it clean.
As part of this program, three times every year volunteers from the local MCWS Mosque get together and pickup the garbage thrown on the sides of the freeway by passing traffic. The effort has been appreciated by the Michigan Governor through the issuance of certificate of appreciation of the good work being done.
