How to Navigate Intersection When Vegetation is High

How to Navigate Intersection When Vegetation is High

Roadside vegetation has certainly "benefited" from the recent rain, and our mowers continue their daily travels throughout the county to systematically address 3,000+ roadside miles. However, because they travel at no more than 4-5 MPH, it is a process, and you may need to navigate roads with high vegetation before our crew gets there. In this video, KCRC's Jerry Byrne shares how to safely navigate intersections with high vegetation and what you can do to help along your property. Remember:

  • Property owners are encouraged to mow along their property to enhance safety of themselves and other motorists
  • The system targets two passes along all of KCRC's right of way and includes both county and state roads
  • A fleet of mowers is deployed May - August, subject to the weather and emergency response efforts
  • Mowing equipment travels at less than 5 miles per hour
