HIGHLAND COUNTY 2013 KRENITE S BRUSH SPRAYING SCHEDULE ANNOUNCED

STAUNTON – The Virginia Department of Transportation’s Lexington Residency Office has announced its schedule for the application of Krenite S for brush control in Highland County this year. The following routes will have Krenite S applied from July 15 to Aug. 23:

Highland County

Route 220, from Route 607 north to 0.10 miles south of Route 606.
Route 250, from Route 616 to top of Bullpasture Mountain.
Route 611, from Route 220 to red gate/cattle guard.
Route 616, from Route 250 to Route 614.        
Route 619, from 0.87 miles east of Route 654 to 2.00 miles east of Route 654.

Route 634, from 0.10 miles before end of state maintenance to 0.20 miles from end of state maintenance.

All of the locations listed may not be covered due to weather conditions and budget.

Krenite S is different from other brush control chemicals. Treated vegetation with Krenite S does not usually show any immediate affects; rather it does not produce foliage the following spring.  

Krenite S will not be applied at locations where adjacent property owners object to the use of this material. Property owners along the above locations who object may post the right of way for no spraying and call 800-367-7623.

The VDOT Staunton District serves Frederick, Shenandoah, Clarke, Warren, Page, Rockingham, Augusta, Highland, Rockbridge, Alleghany and Bath counties.
