Officials with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet are urging political candidates and their supporters to remove all campaign signs from state highway roadsides as highway crews and contractors prepare to start their fall mowing cycle.
Contract mowing crews and state crews will start their fall mowing during the next two weeks across the Commonwealth.
All campaign, advertising and yard sale signs need to be removed from state rights of way ahead of mowing crews as it creates a safety hazard for the public and mowing crews.
Crews are expected to start work along the Audubon Parkway from Owensboro to Henderson around October 22nd, then turn southward and mow along the Breathitt-Pennyrile Parkway from Henderson to Hopkinsville.
Officials are also reminding motorists to slow down and use appropriate caution whenever they enter a mowing zone since crews will be out mowing anytime weather permits between sunup and sundown, Monday through Saturday.
