WayneTwp: Road District

Under the supervision of the Highway Commissioner, the Road District maintains the right-of-way of many streets in the unincorporated areas of Wayne Township.

With few exceptions, the right-of-way is roughly 66 to 80 feet wide or 33 to 40 feet from the center of the street to the property line. Within that 66 to 80 feet the RD assumes many responsibilities:

  • Asphalt patching
  • Asphalt re-surfacing
  • Drainage
  • Gravel shouldering
  • Inspection of all contract services
  • Litter pick-up
  • Roadside mowing
  • Road striping
  • Traffic control signing
  • Street signage
  • Tree removal
  • Winter snow and ice control

The RD performs most duties in house and contracts with private enterprise when necessary. The RD has intergovernmental cooperation with municipalities in and around township boundaries; manpower and equipment are often exchanged for efficiency.

The RD offers these additional services to its unincorporated residents:

  • Brush pick-up
  • Mulch lottery, offered 2x a year, once in spring and once in fall

PERMITS are required for all work within the right-of-way and for some projects on private property.
