Summer

 

Mowing Operations

During the summer months, the Highway Department mows Township owned facilities, island and court areas, and recreational fields and parks. Roadside flail mowing operations to control roadside vegetation along rural road shoulders is done throughout the summer. Please be aware of workers, and drive carefully around slow moving vehicles.

 

Road Paving Projects

Major paving projects on streets and rural roads are sub-contracted to independent contractors.
Please move your vehicles off the street when notified or posted. The contractors make every effort to allow residents in and out of their properties, but there are times when the road must be closed during the paving process. Do not drive on newly paved streets that are closed, until contractor removes all barricades, cones, and signs. During the summer season, please be aware of road resurfacing work in the area and drive carefully through paving construction work zones. The Township will distribute notices to residents in advance, if their street is scheduled for paving.

 

Line Painting Work

Highway center and edge line painting and intersection marking is a sub-contracted service provided by independent contractors. Line painting is a moving operation, so please be aware and do not drive on freshly painted lines. The Township and independent contractors are not responsible for paint damage to motorist's vehicles that drive over painted lines. The Township staff does paint yellow curb sections every few years, on an as needed basis.
