Town of Goshen Highway Department conducts necessary road
repairs and maintenance work every day of the year to ensure
the continued safety of those traveling along Town
roadways. This includes, but is not limited to, ditching,
brush and tree removal, snow removal, and the removal of any
hazards overhanging the roadways. All landowners should be
advised that pursuant to New York State and local laws, all
municipalities maintain a 50 foot right of way on all Town
maintained roads, thus being a 25 foot easement out from the
center of the road. The easement permits the Town to
perform its highway functions without prior consent of the
landowner whose property abuts the roadway.
safety of the public is the Highway Department's highest
priority. Work done in the Town is of the
utmost importance in order to ensure this safety.
Highway office can be contacted with any questions
concerning this matter.
If anyone is
interested in joining fellow Town residents in keeping
our roads clean, please contact our office for
