PIERRE, S.D. (AP) – The state Transportation Department says landowners need to remember that they cannot mow the rights of way east of the Missouri River before July 10.
Mowing the right of way in Gregory, Lyman and Tripp counties could start June 15.
The department says if someone who is not the abutting landowner wants to mow the right of way along an interstate highway, that person needs to apply for a permit and include a waiver signed by the abutting landowner.
The Transportation Department can mow medians and areas within the rights of way prior to July 10 to control noxious weeds and provide safety to motorists.
