Invasive plants — plants not native to an area that can spread aggressively due to a lack of natural predators — have been identified along the northbound and southbound right-of-ways and centre meridian on the highway.

Transportation corridors are specifically vulnerable areas for invasive plants to fester, with the ability for them to be transported to other location by vehicles.

Crews will work Mondays to Thursdays from 5 a.m. to noon beginning June 19. The project will last for between two and three weeks.
