GUARDRAIL SPRAYING

WHAT: Roadside herbicide spraying

ISSUE DATE: April 15, 2022

WHEN: Beginning May 2, 2022-October 31, 2022

WHERE: Antrim, Bennington, Burns, Caledonia Charter, Fairfield, Hazelton, Middlebury, New Haven, Owosso Charter, Perry, Rush, Sciota, Shiawassee, Venice, Vernon, and Woodhull Townships in Shiawassee County

BACKGROUND: The Shiawassee County Road Commission (SCRC) will begin its roadside herbicide guardrail spraying program in Antrim, Bennington, Burns, Caledonia Charter, Fairfield, Hazelton, Middlebury, New Haven, Owosso Charter, Perry, Rush, Sciota, Shiawassee, Venice, Vernon, and Woodhull Townships. (Townships will not be sprayed in this order).

Specifically trained, licensed and experienced professionals will selectively apply the herbicides to specific vegetation that could create a driving hazard along the roadside within the road right-of-way. The herbicides will be applied with a tractor mounted spray unit.

The operation is not a continuous broadcast spray – only roadside areas with existing brush and limbs near the roadway will be sprayed. This spot spraying along local (non-subdivision roads) and primary roads is done on a rotating basis in the county throughout the spring, summer and fall.
