Mowing operations scheduled for Central Kentucky
District 7 crews & contractors continue to work on state routes
Specific counties will provide their own operations
LEXINGTON, Ky. (Sept. 18, 2020) – The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) advises the traveling public that mowing season continues for Central Kentucky. District 7 crews, and contractors will be working on the third mowing cycle along state roadsides. Specific counties (Anderson, Bourbon, Garrard, and Woodford) will furnish their own mowing operations. Exact dates of work for each county will vary, and work is weather dependent.
Cycle 3 Operations will begin September 21, and continue through September 30 for the following counties:
Mowing operations do not typically cause lane closures or similar impacts. However, motorists should watch for traffic changes — especially slowed traffic, or traffic backups along two-lane highways. The Transportation Cabinet asks motorists to help put safety first by slowing down, and using appropriate discretion where crews are working.
Residents are also reminded that Kentucky law prohibits political, or other advertising signs from being posted on state right of way. Signs can be a hazard to motorists, and mowing crews, and will be removed. Owners of signs may retrieve them for a period of time after removal by visiting the state maintenance facility within their county.
District 7 includes Anderson, Bourbon, Boyle, Clark, Fayette, Garrard, Jessamine, Madison, Mercer, Montgomery, Scott, and Woodford Counties.
All work, and closures are subject to change depending on weather, emergencies, and other factors beyond the control of the Department of Highways.
