Traffic Safety Manual - Boone County, Missouri



The County will periodically mow shoulders along all non-subdivision County roads.   All areas will be mowed to a width of approximately 5 feet from the edge of the road.   Other sight distance sensitive areas will be mowed to a greater width, whenever possible, to improve sight distance. The County will attempt to achieve sight distances at intersection equal to or greater than the stopping sight distances recommended in Table 4.   The County will complete tree trimming and brush cutting within the right of way by request or by staff recommendation.   The County will work with the property owners in order to achieve proper sight distance.

The County will allow the adjacent property owners to mow their respective right-of-way areas.
