FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Herbicide Spraying on Route 84 in San Mateo County
San Mateo County- Caltrans maintenance crews will begin spraying Pre–Emergence Herbicide on Route 84, eastbound and westbound in San Mateo County from Post Mile 0.0 to Post Mile 12.6 just before the Town of La Honda on Thursday, January 29, 2014 between the hours of 9:00am to 12:00pm.
This spraying is necessary for safety measures such as clearing weeds around signs and guardrails, sight distance, establishing fire strips and invasive plants and species that maintenance is not able to control by any other means. Spraying is required in advance of the upcoming rains to activate the product. Crews will not spray in driveways, creeks or congregated mailboxes.
NOTE: This is a moving operation; work will take place on the shoulder. No lane closures are necessary.
Please be alert for workers and “Slow for the Cone Zone.”
