Mowing to begin along central KY state highways

ELIZABETHTOWN, KY (AP) - Road crews will begin mowing along state highways in central Kentucky in the coming week.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says mowing season stretches through early fall and includes three cutting cycles along 2,900 miles of state-maintained highways in Breckinridge, Grayson, Green, Hardin, Hart, LaRue, Marion, Meade, Nelson, Taylor and Washington counties.

The interstate mowing operation includes a litter sweep before each cycle.

Officials are asking motorists to use caution in mowing zones and allow equipment plenty of space.
