Best Management Practices for Transportation and Utility Corridors

Transportation and utility corridors are at-risk sites for the introduction and spread of noxious and invasive plants. Corridor managers and staff can greatly reduce the introduction and spread of invasive plants by incorporating prevention measures into their daily management activities.

Additionally, implementing prevention BMPs in corridor management can reduce maintenance needs and cost, reduce erosion and fire hazards, limit liability for the governing agency, improve appearance, maintain good public relations, and provide wildlife habitat. This manual presents an accessible overview of key prevention measures as well as ready-to-use checklists.
