 RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Virginia Department of Transportation crews are on a statewide mowing marathon to help ensure safe travels for the busy July 4th holiday.
     The grass-cutting blitz continues through Tuesday ahead of the height of the holiday travel season.
     Gov. Bob McDonnell says VDOT crews and contractors intend to mow as many state-maintained roads as possible before Independence Day. Besides the safety aspect, McDonnell says freshly shorn grass enhances the state's appearance for residents and visitors.
     While the mowing blitz is underway, VDOT urges motorists to be alert to crews.
