The St. Joseph County Road Commission has announced that it will be doing a ‘test spray’ of chemicals this fall to control brush in the road right-of-way along approximately 18 miles of roadway. The program is designed to aid drainage and contain roadside brush that could obstruct motorists’ vision.
Roads affected will be Shimmel from M-86 to US-12, Michigan Ave. from Fulton to Correll, Correll from M-60 to Michigan Ave., Shannon from M-60 to Blossom, Longnecker from Correll to Shorts, and Fulton from Michigan Ave. North to County Line. “No Spray Permits” will be available this week, at the road commission office or on line at http://www.stjoeroads.com/permits/permits.htm for property owners, in the affected areas, to opt out of the spraying program by signing a contract agreeing to take responsibility for controlling brush themselves.
