FORT WAYNE – The Indiana Department of Transportation announces that herbicide treatments are scheduled for various counties throughout INDOT’s Fort Wayne District, beginning Tuesday, Sept. 4, weather permitting.

Motorists may encounter slow-moving vehicles on state and federal roadways (listed below), as crews work to spray more than 4,000 acres of state right-of-way for invasive/noxious. With effective herbicide applications, INDOT can improve roadside appearance while reducing costs to taxpayers.
