Saving money and helping the bees

WSDOT says you might be noticing some difference along state highways this season.

WSDOT planting guidelines and some new mowing policies are helping provide a better habitat for pollinators, like our bees.

We are mowing less (still in some areas for safety and to guarantee sight-lines) which is giving bees, butterflies and others extra plans for pollinators.

Cutting back on mowing saves WSDOT around $550,000 each year. You can read more about the specifics in WSDOT's National Pollinator Week blog.
