(MARIETTA, OH) - Beginning Monday, March 31, 2014, State Route 260 will be closed from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM to allow for Monroe County maintenance forces to perform a brush cutting operation. The closure will begin at the Washington County line and extend for approximately four miles to the intersection of SR 565.
Vegetation, if not controlled, can present a safety hazard for several reasons. Trees close to the road can present a fixed object hazard. Tall grass, weeds, brush and tree limbs obscure or limit a driver’s view of the road ahead, traffic control devices, approaching vehicles, wildlife and livestock, and pedestrians and bicycles.
