Monroe County Road Commission In 2018, the Monroe County Road Commission began contracting with state-licensed pesticide applicators to perform annual herbicide treatment of invasive phragmites in roadside ditches along the Road Commission’s 440-mile-long primary road network. Invasive phragmites create tall, dense stands that crowd out native plants and animals, prevent roadside ditches from working correctly, and obstruct motorists’ views from side streets and driveways. The Road Commission joined the DRWLE-CWMA in 2019 to collaborate with other agencies attempting to control the spread of invasive phragmites in Monroe County and gain knowledge on best practices for surveying and treating invasive species.
