PennDOT Vegetation Management Permits Available
Tinicum Township residents who live along a state highway and are concerned with the spraying of herbicides by PennDOT may apply for a permit to eliminate the spraying of vegetation on their property. The PennDOT Application for a Right- of -Way Vegetation Management Permit will restrict PennDOT from spraying herbicide, but also requires the property owner to maintain vegetation on their property in the right-of-way in accordance with PennDOT's roadside management standards. In general, vegetation must be controlled to permit clear travel on the roadway, provide unobstructed sight for motorists and permit the flow of stormwater. Detailed requirements are explained in the permit application. After completing the Right of Way Management Permit, please return to: PennDOT, District 6-0, 7000 Geerdes Blvd, King of Prussia, PA 19406. Posted 7/11/17
