PennDOT Herbicide Spraying Alternative
Posted Date:
Option to opt out of PennDOT's roadside herbicide spraying.
Cheltenham Township officials announce that residents in properties situated along state highways who are concerned about PennDOT’s spraying of herbicides for roadside vegetation management have an option to avoid future spraying on their properties.  Instead, residents may complete an “Application for a Right-of-Way Vegetation Management Permit” to obtain permission to control and maintain vegetation in their own roadside right-of-ways. In the future, PennDOT or contracted herbicide spray crews will not spray areas covered by permits that are visibly maintained to a level that exceeds PennDOT’s roadside maintenance standards.
