Due to the lengthy rainy conditions in May, Kentucky Transportation Cabinet crews and contractors will resume mowing along highways and roads.
Spokesman Keith Todd indicates KYTC contractors have made some progress in Christian County and Daviess County. He says state crews have managed to mow some rural secondary highways and have moved to some U.S. highways in some counties as weather has allowed.
According to Todd, mowing zones will be marked by appropriate signage and motorists should treat the mowing zones with the same caution as any other work zone. Drivers are urged to slow down and watch for slow-moving tractors and support vehicles that may be required to cross travel lanes from time to time as they go about their work. Motorists should also be mindful of personnel near traffic flow in areas with ongoing mowing or litter removal.
KYTC District 2 is responsible for 33-hundred miles of highway in Caldwell, Webster, Union, Henderson, Hopkins, Christian, Muhlengerg, McLean, Daviess, Hancock and Ohio counties
