Sustainable Management of Vegetation on Kentucky Highway Rights-of-Way

Grants and Contracts Details


Vegetation management along Kentucky roadsides encompasses several management strategies including but not limited to mechanical and chemical turf mowing, tree trimming and removal, chemical and other types of weed control, turf fertilization, and desirable plant establishment and maintenance. Each of the twelve districts across Kentucky deals with vegetation problems that are potentially unique to that district and, therefore, each uses different management techniques and has its own goals. A research program at the University of Kentucky will consider the different management goals for each district along with their unique vegetation management scenarios and assist the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Roadside Environment Branch to develop an efficient, effective, environmentally responsible, and nationally respected vegetation management program.
