County to begin mowing road ditches

Partial McLeod County road ditch mowing will begin this week near intersections and areas where tall grass may cause reduced sight lines for motorists.
Next week, the county highway department will start making a top cut adjacent to the shoulder on all county roads. It also will be mowing any thistle patches and other noxious weeds encountered in the entire road right of way. The mowing usually takes two weeks, weather permitting, and is accomplished with four mower tractors.
The department urges 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.
