Mow is less: State plans limited grass cutting on county roads

You may have to mow your lawn at least once a week to keep the grass short, but the state highway department only plans to mow intersections and ditches in the county twice this summer.

Highway workers will be mowing U.S. 31, State Road 135 and the other four state highways in Johnson County twice this year. The highway department mowed along U.S. 31 this week but otherwise hasn’t mowed in the county this summer.

Workers will only mow more often if grass or weeds grow tall enough to block motorists’ view. U.S. 31 will get first priority for mowing in Johnson County this year, and then State Road 135, Indiana Department of Transportation spokesman Harry Maginity said.
