Look Out for Ditch Mowers 13 Jun 16

Partial McLeod County road ditch mowing will begin this week (June 13th) near intersections and areas where tall grass may cause reduced sight lines for motorists.

Officials say next week, crews will start making a top cut adjacent to the shoulder on all County roads.

Crews will also be mowing any thistle patches and other noxious weeds encountered in the entire road right of way.

The mowing usually takes 2 weeks, weather permitting and is accomplished with 4 mower tractors.

Officials urge motorists to always drive with caution when encountering the mowers as well as any other highway maintenance equipment and slow down and watch for workers in any work zone.
