Transportation crews will begin spraying for weeds soon
From Naitore Djigbenou/Chuck Wolfe
Frankfort, KY - The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) crews will soon begin treating noxious and nuisance weeds throughout the state to improve driver safety and support efficient maintenance operations by limiting their presence. Property owners who are actively treating noxious weeds on private property may request highway crews to treat select nuisance weeds found on adjacent state-owned right of way.
The Cabinet targets 12 noxious weeds in accordance with KRS 176.051 and 603 KAR 3:100:
Noxious weeds often invade and destroy the roadside turf grass, leaving these areas vulnerable to erosion. They can also smother native plants through rapid reproduction and long-term persistence.
Kentuckians who want to request weed treatment must submit a written application to their local KYTC highway district office. To request an application, please contact the appropriate district highway office. Contact information may be found on the district webpages listed here.
Motorists are reminded to use extra caution when crews spraying for weeds are out on the roadways.
