Anyone who operates vehicles on Town roads rely on the Highway Department to keep them moving. The Town of Rosendale Highway Department maintains more than 70 miles of roadway. In addition, hundred of catch basins and culverts are maintained. The Highway Department assists in the removal of trees that have fallen in severe weather. Every spring the Highway Department schedules a town wide sweeping of roads, and in the winter there’s plenty of plowing. Residents should remember to follow all local ordinances with regards to parking on town roads and at no time should snow from your driveway be pushed or blown onto town roads.

In the event of any emergency or problem needed to be addressed IMMEDIATELY please call the Police Department at (845)658-9000

The Town’s Highway Department is responsible for 70 lane miles of town owned roads. A crew of 9 men, under the direction of the Superintendent handle many important job duties to carry out their main concern for our township….THE SAFETY OF ALL ROADWAYS.

Some, but not all, of the Highway Department’s jobs are culvert pipe replacement, maintenance and replacement of storm drains, blacktopping, snow plowing and sanding. Some of their other projects run the gamut from maintenance and replacement of guardrails, grass, brush and tree cutting on town right-of-ways to clearing and maintenance work on properties and buildings within flood control areas.

The Highway Department also is responsible for the maintenance and up-keep of all town buildings and grounds—including repairs when deemed necessary. Throughout April and May, the department also sweeps the roadways of any winter debris and salts from winter storms and performs a continuous spring and summer mowing of road right-of-ways to maintain the visibility for both safety and aesthetical purposes.

This department’s responsibilities are many, and all townsfolk should be quite proud that we have a Highway Department that works with such integrity to keep our roadways safe and beautiful!
