Road Maintenance and Snow Removal
The roads within the town are classified as state roads, county roads and town roads. (See below.) Maintenance and safety concerns differ between each jurisdiction. The Rush Highway Department is responsible for the supervision, construction, repair, and maintenance of all town highways and streets and all culverts and storm water drainage systems within the jurisdiction of the town's rights-of-way. (NOTE: A permit required for work on all rights-of-way.) The town contracts with Monroe County for roadside mowing, dead animal pickup and approved summer road work.
The Highway Department is responsible for all snow removal on town roads. The town has contracts with the State of New York and the County of Monroe during the winter months for snow and ice removal services.
Below is a listing of roads by jurisdiction and contact numbers to call:
East Henrietta Road (Rt. 15A)

During the snow and ice season, the Highway Department will replace any mailbox damaged by a town vehicle, provided it was in good repair and located in the right-of-way prior to being damaged. Lawn damage due to snow and ice removal operations performed by town vehicles will be repaired in the spring by the Highway Department.
