Roadside Mowing Program

Roadside Growth Maintenance  

The Town of Lincoln provides roadside mowing along shoulders three times a year in rural areas of the Town.


  • Preserve driver sightlines
  • Allow for positive surface drainage from road to adjacent ditches
  • Improve the overall appearance of the roadside

Some things to know:

  • The first and second cuts include the front of the ditch only (from the centre of the ditch to the roads edge).
  • The third cut includes the front AND back sides of the ditch (from the centre of the ditch to the slope of the ditch on the property owner’s side).
  • We have only one tractor that is used for roadside mowing, therefore, the width of a cut depends on how accessible the area is for the tractor.
