Watch for Mowing Crews Along Area Highways
By West Kentucky Star Staff
WESTERN KENTUCKY - Crews have started their fall round of mowing along interstates, parkways, and state highways in western Kentucky.

Drivers are urged to slow down and watch for tractors, support vehicles and workers when they see signs that indicate they are entering a mowing zone. 

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet reminds everyone that political signs and other advertising are not allowed along state right-of-way and should be removed. They create both an obstacle and a safety hazard for mowing crews and will be removed.
Contractors are working along area interstates, parkways, and US highways. State crews are ramping up mowing activities along US Highways and rural secondary highways in many Western Kentucky counties.

As of Monday, crews will be in the following locations:

• KY 453/Dover Road and The Trace in Land Between The Lakes from Grand Rivers to the KY-TN State Line starting Monday.

• Interstate 24 from the Ohio River Bridge to the KY-TN State line in Christian County starting Oct 21.

• U.S. 60 from I-24 Exit 4 to the McCracken-Ballard County Line starting around Oct 22.

• KY 1954/John Puryear Drive from I-24 Exit 11 to the John Puryear Bridge around Oct 24.

• U.S. 68 from I-24 Exit 16 to the U.S. 62 intersection around Oct 25.
Mowing and litter crews will have active work zones for about the next month, as weather conditions allow.
