Roadside weeds will be sprayed March - September

The Mesa County Transportation Department, in cooperation with Mesa County Noxious Weed & Pest Management, has scheduled the application of herbicides to manage weeds along roadways throughout Mesa County (by way of a contracted Licensed Commercial Applicator.)

Roadside and Right-of-Way weed treatment (up to 10 feet on each side of the road) will be conducted county-wide several times from March through September.

If a property owner/manager wishes to manage the weeds along the right-of-way adjacent to their property on their own (and have the applicator abstain from spraying along their property line), they may request to be added to the county "No Spray" list.

It will then be the responsibility of the property owner to clearly indicate (by signage or bright flagging) the property lines and to manage weeds in and along that area.

Please contact Mesa County Noxious Weed & Pest Management at (970) 255-7121 or weed.pest@mesacounty.us to be added to the "No Spray" list or for other weed identification and treatment questions.

For questions regarding the roadside vegetation mowing, please contact the Mesa County Transportation Department at (970) 244-1807.
