Mowing the Highway Grass Should Be County Governments’ Responsibility, Not PennDOT’s

Share With Friends

Rural areas of the state obviously have way more grass to mow in the medians next to highways than urban areas do. But as Barry Schoch is always pointing out, urban areas subsidize rural roads. Not just essential stuff like maintenance of the actual pavement, but apparently mowing the grass in the medians too. Why is the state still mowing the grass in rural areas while urban transit is getting cut? Why haven’t we unloaded this responsibility onto county governments yet?
