Robert Densmore -
Deputy Highway Superintendent

Under the supervision of the Superintendent of Highways, the main mission of the Highway Department is the maintenance and improvement of a network of approximately 140 lane miles of town highways to ensure a safe infrastructure for the motoring and general public. The Highway Superintendent is the custodian of the right-of-way. In addition to road maintenance, within the borders of the right-of-way, the department maintains drainage, cuts grass, and removes brush. Residential brush pickup for town residents and community is subject to strict rules and regulations. The department is accountable to keep four bridges in repair. During the winter months, the department is responsible for snow removal and ice control, not only to the Town of Evans 140 lane miles, but also an additional 70 lane miles of Erie County highways.

Highway Policy Regarding the Delivery of Excess Fill, Wood Chips, Sweeping, etc.

Any town resident who requests entry onto their property for purposes mentioned, must fill out and sign the attached right-of-entry form. No deliveries will be made until the form is properly completed, notarized, and returned to the highway department. Be advised that residents will receive a full load of material. If amount or size is a question, you should come to the highway department and inspect one of our trucks. Also, once dumped, the load in its entirety becomes the responsibility of the homeowner and will not be picked up. Space is provided on the back of the right-of-entry form for the resident to supply a detailed drawing of the location where the material should be dumped. This drawing should include any obstacles or areas to avoid should no one be at home at the time of the delivery. We would prefer a colored stake or ribboned stake in the ground clearly marking the spot. There is no timetable as to when material will be delivered, or if any material other than wood chips will be available when requested. Your cooperation regarding this matter is greatly appreciated.

Mailbox Replacement Policy

To avoid any misunderstanding or confusion please be advised that the Town of Evans policy for replacement of a mailbox damaged beyond repair by a snowplow is the following:

As a courtesy, the Town of Evans Highway Department will replace mailboxes that were damaged due to snow removal, assuming the mailbox was previously in reasonably good condition. The mailbox will be replaced with a 4×4 wooden post and standard U.S. mailbox. It is recommended that decorative mailboxes be temporarily replaced over the winter months by homeowners. This policy applies only on roadways plowed by the Town of Evans Highway Department.

  •  If you have a dump truck or properly rated trailer, you may come right to the Highway barns and we will load them for you.
  • If you would like to have wood chips delivered, then a “Right of Entry Permit” must be obtained by printing out the application below. Complete the form and we will submit it to the Code Enforcement Office who will then review, approve or disapprove. Then it will be forwarded to the Highway Department. Be aware that delivery of wood chips is subject to department staffing and current work zone, so there is no timeframe for delivery. (Right of Entry Permit Link)
