Permanent Vegetation Control Treatments for Roadsides

The objective of this research is to produce up-to-date guidance for transportation agencies for selecting appropriate permanent vegetation controls that will be effective in preventing or significantly retarding the growth of unwanted vegetation around roadside appurtenances and along roadsides. The guidance will identify controls appropriate for new construction and for existing facilities. In addition, the guidance will describe how to select effective permanent vegetation controls that also address traveler and highway worker safety and costs of construction and maintenance, as well as minimize adverse environmental impacts.
