Mowing set to begin in District 3

Please remove all signs on state right of way

By Wes Watt, Public Information Officer
Kentucky Transportation Cabinet District 3, Bowling Green, KY

BOWLING GREEN, KY (Wed 4 May 2016) As mowing season approaches crews from the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet will began removing signs illegally placed on state right of way in District 3. Signs already placed can be removed by the owner before the crews remove it as long as it is not placed back on state right of way.

Examples of common signs removed are political, business and promotional signs that encroach on the right of way of state highways.

Crews are expected to begin mowing this week and signs placed on the right of way interfere with mowing operations and create a danger if a sign gets run over by a mower. The signs on the right of way also limit vision for drivers and add to distracted driving.

In addition to signs planted on state right of way, signs attached to guardrail or official signs are also illegal and will be removed. Stickers should not be placed on any road signs either. Signs that have to be removed by District 3 crews will be taken to the local state facility in that county. The signs will be held for pickup for two weeks before being discarded.
