Between June 7 and July 15, farmers and ranchers are being reminded that Ministry contractors will be mowing a four-metre wide strip only on the shoulders of heavily-travelled highways. These include highways 1, 7, 11, 16, 39, along with portions of highways 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 9, 10 and 55.) Other highways won’t receive a shoulder cut during this period, but some highway intersections may receive a full ditch cut.

From July 15 until fall, contractors will conduct additional mowing activities in the right-of-way, which will include a mow of the entire width along all four-lane highways. All other highways will receive a shoulder cut. Additional mowing may be conducted near interchanges, railway crossings, tourism facilities, approaches and as required for visibility and for control of weeds and brush.

Hay salvage opportunities and the progress of contracted mowers are weather dependent.
