GDOT Begins Roadside Vegetation Management Work in Murray County
CHATSWORTH, Ga. – As part of its integrated roadside vegetation management program, Georgia Department of Transportation (DOT) routine maintenance crews begin this morning their work on trimming overgrown vegetation along state Route (SR) 286 in Murray County. Work will proceed daily Tuesday through Friday between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m., weather permitting.
Integrated roadside vegetation management is a method to bring together social and cultural elements, biological concerns, and mechanical treatments to economically manage roadsides for motorist safety, environmental health and visual quality.
You know that construction work zones are dangerous, but do you know that they are not always stationary? Moving work zones that conduct maintenance activities like litter pickup, asphalt repair, mowing, edge pavement repair, pavement marking and sweeping may move slowly and stop intermittently. Treat moving work zones like any other – Pay Attention – Slow Down – Watch for Workers. And always, expect the unexpected. Work zone safety is in your hands.
