The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is reminding area motorists to be on alert for mowing crews as they continue their work across the state.
Public Information Officer, Keith Todd says mowing zones should be treated with the same level of caution like all other work zones where slow moving equipment and support vehicles are working in close proximity to traffic flow.
Todd also spoke about a recent incident in Hopkins County where a vehicle collided with a mower.
Officials say mowing crews are expected to start work on I-24 sometime this week, starting at the Ohio River Bridge near the Kentucky-Illinois State Line and work eastward toward the Kentucky-Tennessee State Line near the 93 mile marker.
Officials say above average rainfall this summer has spurred unusually heavy growth of roadside grasses.
