Virginia Department of Transportation
CULPEPER — The Virginia Department of Transportation will begin spraying Krenite S to control brush on its right of way along state-maintained roads in Albemarle County. The herbicide will be applied on the following primary and secondary roads between Aug. 26 and Sept. 27:
Krenite S is different in its effect from most other brush control chemicals. Vegetation sprayed does not usually show any immediate effects such as browning and dieback, nor is the entire plant killed. Those limbs that are sprayed do not produce foliage the following spring, leaving the remainder of the plant unaffected.
Krenite S will not be applied on VDOT right of way that fronts residential yards, lawns and planted landscapes. Property owners who object to the application on right of way that is not covered by these automatic exclusions may call VDOT's Customer Service Center, 800-367-7623. The center is open 24 hours a day for motorists to report road hazards, ask transportation questions, or get information related to Virginia's roads.
