BISMARCK, NORTH DAKOTA May 15, ! 945 TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN: The State Highway Department is asking the taxpayers of North Dakota to assist in reducing the cost of maintoimng rights of way on Federal and State high. ways. Thoughtlessness or carelessness on the part of the public is increasing this cost each year. It has been the practice of many individuals to dump bottles, cans and other debris along the highway rights of way. Others have hauled rock from fields adjacent to the highways and dumped it on the right of way. Still others hove cultivated zights of way which had been seeded to grass. Rocks, bottles and other debris must be gathered up from the fights of way before the weeds and grass can be cut. This costs the Highway Department a barge sum at money each year, in addition to the expense of repairing equipment and tires damaged by debris that has been overlooked. The practice "cultivating the highway rights of way causes the soil to become subject to erosion, which would be prevented it they were let grow to grass, it is very expenswe to clean out ditches afte they have drifted full of loose soil, or to fill and repair washes along ditches and on rights of way. In cases where rights of way have been cultivated after tame grass has been planted, not only is the grass destroyed but the soil again becomes subject to erosion. With the assistance of the public in discontinuing these practices, a great saving can mnde to the Highway Department. Your cooperation is earnestly solicited. STATE HIGHWAY DEPA .TMEN N. O.
