Herbicide Spraying on Route 84 in San Mateo County

San Mateo County- The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) Roadside Vegetation Control Crews will begin spraying Herbicide on Route 84, westbound in San Mateo County from Post Mile 1.0 to Post Mile 14.95 on Tuesday, March 3, 2015, and the following Tuesday, March 10, 2015, between the hours of 9:00am to 2:00pm.

During a routine inspection, Caltrans deemed 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. Scotch broom (an invasive shrub) has encroached the travel way which creates a safety hazard for motorist. Crews will not spray in driveways, creeks or congregated mailboxes. No spraying will take place within 50 feet of all creeks and rivers.

NOTE: No spraying will take place in the Town of La Honda or San Gregorio.

Properties displaying a “No Spray Sign” will not be sprayed.

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.”
