Higher Snow Means Higher Grass In Maryland

By Matt Bush

Higher snows in the winter will mean higher grass in the summer in Maryland.

The State Highway Administration is more than $20 million over its budget for snow removal. With no additional money on the way from state lawmakers, the SHA will shift money from other projects to fill that gap and pay for snow removal for future storms.

Spokesman Chuck Gischlar says that means delaying the mowing of grass on land the SHA owns. Grass at intersections will be mowed, according to Gischler, because of safety concerns.
