Grass, Weeds Get High Again
In Some Medians

Sun photo by O.J. Early

It will likely be another month before the median in this section of U.S. Highway 11E in Mosheim, near Pottertown Road, will be mowed.

Look For 'Spot Mowing,'

But Not General Mowing,

Until Mid-August: TDOT



The second round of mowing in medians along U.S. Highway 11E in sections of Greene County won't begin until mid-August, Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) spokesman Mark Nagi said Wednesday.

Town of Greeneville Public Works employees were mowing medians along the 11E Bypass in Greeneville on Wednesday, a Public Works employee said.

U.S. 11E is both a federal and a state highway, and is under the supervision of TDOT.

Medians inside Greeneville town limits, however, are maintained by the Greeneville Public Works Department.

For at least the past two summers, dozens of citizens have complained about the height of grass and weeds in local medians.

State Rep. David Hawk, R-5th, of Greeneville, said he gets numerous calls each summer about unmowed medians in the county.

"I normally get calls before the Iris Festival (in May)," Hawk said Wednesday. "I have not received nearly as many this summer."

Road Superintendent David Weems also said his office has received few complaints this summer about medians in the county with high grass and weeds.

TDOT crews will conduct "spot mowing" when grass grows high enough to be dangerous for travelers, Nagi said.

"Spot mowing" has happened several times in the county this year, he said.
