Roadside brushing

Partridge Township will do brushing of the ditches and the road right of ways on a continual basis.  Maintaining the safety of the Township’s roads, by controlling potential hazards such as brush and tree limb growth along shoulder areas within right of ways, is a priority.  The reasons for roadside brushing are as follows:

  • Wider shoulders give motorists more space to travel and possibly escape potential traffic crashes
  • Improves sight distances and creates openness for driving ease
  • Furnishes space for snow removal
  • Provides an area allowing for proper road drainage
  • Reduces ice due to shading
  • Reduces vehicle and wild life collisions

The Township clears roadside growth by the following methods:

  • Mechanical brushing
  • Hand brushing
  • Roadside mowing
