The Office of Highway Operations’ objective is to provide mowing service along all county roadways and to ensure safe visibility for the traveling public.
Mowing begins in late April and the objective is to mow each road at least once every 4 to 6 weeks. The mowers will make one “pass” 5-feet wide while the vegetation is growing rapidly. They make 2 “passes” during the slower growing summer months.
Boom mowers will be used to mow banks and behind guardrails once or twice a year.
