Snowplowing of Roads and Sidewalks

During the winter months the Town of Sweden has 74.46 miles of roads to be plowed. The Town owns 27.22 miles of road, 33.55 miles of road are owned by Monroe County, 13.69 miles of road are owned by New York State. Actual plowing mileage is double the distances above because both sides of the road need to be plowed.

Driveway Snowplowing

It is very important that during winter months residents do not deposit snow into the roadway when clearing their driveways. Whether you are clearing the driveway yourself or a contractor is handling it for you make sure the snow is cleared well off the shoulder of the roadway so it does not create a road hazard for oncoming traffic. Plowing or snow blowing into or across the street is unsafe, and against the law.

Mailbox Replacement

During winter snow removal the force of flying snow alone can displace an already weakened box, mount, or post. If town crews damage your mailbox during snow removal it is not done intentionally. As a courtesy, the Town of Sweden Highway Department will repair or replace mailboxes and posts if the damage was a result of the town's work. If replacement is warranted, it will be with a standard 4' x 4' wooden post and a standard galvanized steel box at no charge to the resident. Again, this is done as a courtesy and custom boxes or posts will only be replaced with the standard materials.

From past experience we have found that plastic mailboxes do not hold, and are not recommended during the winter months due to the cold weather. Posts with fancy supports are also not recommended. If you have a plastic or decorative mailbox we suggest that you remove it during the winter and replace it with a standard metal mailbox. Town plows will remove snow as close to mailboxes as possible, however, the detailed removal around the box is the homeowners' responsibility.

Mailbox Installation Information:

  • Make sure that the face of your mailbox is at least 16 feet from the center of the roadway.
  • The bottom of the post or board that the mailbox sits on should be 42" above the height of the road surface.
