Around here the County Road Commission plows our roads. Are these the same guys that fill in pot holes and replace guard rails? If so....what other jobs do they do in the summer? While were on the subject...what other jobs do they do in the winter?

Here in NJ, we have Interstate roads, state roads, county roads, and local roads. Each has a different crew that does the plowing. The NJ Turnpike is usually the best cleaned in the state. They don't skimp on trucks or salt/sand/brine. That crew works for the turnpike, I assume. Have a friend that drives a heavy truck for the county; he gets called in to plow when it snows. If it's really bad snow, they'll outfit garbage truck with plows and send them out to clear snow. They plow my residential street with a pickup truck.

A mish-mosh. Numbered state roads are done by the state except sometimes in low speed limit areas there'll be a "DOT Compact- Urban line" sign and then the town takes over. Delivers the treat of inconsistent results.

Our state DOT pays $13.50/ hr and has a 100-point system for smashing innocent bystanding objects. IDK all the details but it sounds like once you get to 100 your career is in need of some counseling. LOL

The city will do the main road with their tractor. No other roads are plowed except mine by me.

If it ever did snow here the whole city would be screwed. Although I have a few redneck friends that would probably enjoy hooking plows up to tow trucks and rolling coal all over town.

Town and state.

No need for winter tires the roads are black within hours of storm because the salt and sand they pour in copious amounts.

In our small area there is 4 layers:

1. Village (city streets)
2. Township (country roads)
3. County (country highways)
4. State (state highways/interstates)

We live in a low property tax area and our roads only get plowed if there is an enormous dumping of snow and even then they remain about 2-4" packed of snow/ice and white in colour all winter.

My folks live on a rural highway and it's cleaned every hour. (Same city).

I think it's the state that plows the roads here, and they only need to do it once a year, or less. And when they do, they tear up all of the raised reflectors between lanes.
