Mowing roadside ditches prohibited before July 15

JOHNSON COUNTY– Johnson County’s Integrated Roadside Vegetation Management (IRVM) program reminds residents, landowners and local road maintenance crews that Iowa law prohibits the mowing of ditches along county secondary roads and state primary and interstate highways each year prior to July 15. The no-mow order allows time for hatching and development of ground-nesting birds and pollinators.
Johnson County Roadside Vegetation Manager Chris Henze said that in 2010, legislation changed the date from July 1 to July 15.

SHUEYVILLE— For anybody who has driven the length of Curtis Bridge Road in northwest Johnson County, to say it is in bad shape would be an understatement. Its dilapidated condition led county officials to move the road up on its Five-year Road Maintenance and Improvement Plan, with work scheduled to begin late this summer.
Some surface material will be ground down, and the road will be widened two feet on either side before a hot asphalt overlay is applied for a smoother ride.
