Project Description:
The applicant proposes to modify their current permit for construction of a highway interchange to include control the alien invasive species Japanese knotweed (Polygonum cuspidatum) within the 100-foot adjacent area of Freshwater Wetland BF-1. The applicant is concerned that because of the invasive nature of this plant, it could choke out other trees and shrubs designed to be planted as part of the original wetland permit.  The Japanese knotweed will be cut to ground level and allowed to grow back to approximately 6-8 inched in length at which point a glyphosate herbicide will be applied.
