This year’s roadside maintenance schedule remains similar to the one adopted in 2009, when mowing cycles on most routes were reduced, extending the length of time between repeated mowing in areas where sight distance and motorist safety were not issues. VDOT has developed mowing priorities and schedules for all state-maintained roads, beginning late April and continuing through October. While we have stretched our mowing cycles the last few summers to save taxpayer money in this difficult economy, the safety of drivers, cyclists and pedestrians remains our first priority. We will continue to ensure that roadside vegetation is maintained so that everyone who uses state roadways has a safe view of their route and so our storm water drainage systems work as designed.
Roadsides along interstates, high-volume primary and secondary routes are scheduled to be mowed no more than three times this year beginning in late April and ending in late October. Litter will be removed at the same frequency. Crews will mow up to 18 feet from the pavement’s edge or to the center of the adjacent ditch. This means the entire median may not be mowed…only 18 feet from the edge of the pavement.
If you see an area that is causing sight distance issues, please fill out VDOT’s online maintenance request form at http://www.virginiadot.org/travel/citizen.asp or call our customer service center at 800-367-7623 (ROAD) and report the location that needs to be mowed.
