Our hardworking road department maintains our many roads throughout the Township during the rough winter months plowing snow and spreading salt. Through the spring, summer and fall you can find our road crew filling potholes, mowing right-of-ways or removing fallen tree branches and debris from the roadways. All of this hard work is achieved by only (3) full time employees and (3) seasonal part-timers.
With the upcoming winter months and the inevitable threat of snow, we would like to remind all residents that when shoveling driveways and sidewalks, snow is not to be thrown into the roadways. This makes traveling on roads dangerous and adds to the efforts of the road crew when plowing during and after a storm. After a snowstorm, how many times have you shoveled your driveway or sidewalk only to have it plowed in?
The Road Department suggests that you wait until the street is cleared before you shovel the last five feet of your driveway or your sidewalk. Always clear an area to the right of your driveway (as seen in the diagram) to give the snow on the blade of the plow a place to empty before it gets to your driveway. This way you won’t have to do the same job twice.
The Road Department also reminds you that it is illegal to push snow from a parking lot or driveway onto a township roadway.
Also please remember to put all garbage cans on the curb line and not into the road. This is important throughout the year and not just winter. If the cans are in the road they obstruct traffic and become unnecessary obstacles for drivers and the plows in winter to avoid. We would like to thank the Road Department for their hard work and dedication throughout the year to keep the roads clean, clear and open for our residents.
