Remove hay from right-of-way

Remove hay from right-of-way The South Dakota Department of Transportation (SDDOT) requests the cooperation of all farmers and ranchers in removing processed hay from the highway right-of-way.

State regulations require that hay be removed from the right-of-way within 30 days of being processed, but no later than Oct. 1. Hay not removed from the right-of-way will be removed and disposed of by the SDDOT.

Removing hay bales from the highway right-of-way is an important safety consideration for motorists. The bales or stacks can be a safety hazard for vehicles forced to leave the road and, in some cases, can restrict a driver's sight distance. Hay left in the road ditches late in the year can also cause snowdrifts across the highway.
