HIGHLAND COUNTY 2011 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 Sep. 12 to Sep. 23:

Highland County

Route 615, from Route 678 to Route 250.
Route 618, from Route 614 to Dead End.
Route 620, from Route 614 to West Virginia Line.
Route 620, from Route 654 to West Virginia Line.        
Route 600 U, from Route 84 to 7 miles in.
Route 631, from Route 250 to Route 629.

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.

Traffic alerts and traveler information can be obtained by dialing 511. In areas where 511 is unavailable, dial 1-866-MY511VA (866-695-1182) (TTY/TDD users, call 711). Traffic alerts and traveler information also are available at 511Virginia.org.
