Consider This...Nice to see landscaping crews along the highway

Earlier in the week I called on the Texas Department of Transportation to clean up the weeds and tall grass along the interstate in and around Lubbock.

Well, I'm happy to report that crews were out working on it the very next day. KCBD camera crews caught a video Thursday showing the contractor mowing along the freeway.

I'm told the interstate is next.

So, even if my public complaint was coincidental to the mowing, it is nice to see some action. So thank you TxDOT.

Consider This:

As I mentioned before, weeds and tall grass along major highways is not just an eyesore for drivers, it's a bad first impression to visitors, prospective students and businesses.

And can be a major turn off.

It should be a priority going forward that those right of ways be monitored and kept on a tight landscaping schedule.
