highway tips for Homeowners and Businesses

Belgian block driveways should be flush with the roadway. 

Gravel driveways should have an apron that helps to contain any loose gravel. Before installing an apron, please see the Highway Superintendent to obtain a permit.

When mowing your lawn, please blow grass clippings off the roadway so as not to impede the flow of runoff water into storm drains. Grass clippings that go down storm drains add harmful nitrogen to the water supply, so please either mulch your clippings or bag and remove them. 

Keep any vegetation from encroaching onto the Town right-of-ways.

Thank you for your cooperation!


These grass clippings are clogging a storm drain and should be blown off the road.

Driveways and Aprons

The blocks on this apron are flush with the road, but the edging blocks should not reach the roadway since plows will come into contact with them.
