Mission

It is the Mission of the Town of Porter Department of Highways to ensure our customers- those who live, work and travel in the Town of Porter- have a safe, efficient, balanced and environmentally sound highway system in the Town.

Snow and Ice Control on Town, County and State highways under the jurisdiction of the Town of Porter – Goal:

It is the departments goal to provide highways that are passable and reasonably safe for vehicular traffic as much of the time as possible within the limitations imposed by weather conditions and the availability of equipment, material and personnel. It is recognized that due to resource limitations and weather conditions, pavement surfaces will be snow covered and/or slippery some of the time. The traveling public must exercise caution and drive appropriately in those situations.

Level of Service: 

A regular level of service will be maintained on all highways under the jurisdiction of the department between 4:00AM and 10:00PM Monday thru Friday. A modified level of service will be provided on all roads at all times on Saturday, Sunday and Holidays.

Call Out Response and Personal Readiness:

The Superintendent of Highways or his designate will monitor weather conditions and patrol Town, County and State Highways prior to 4:00AM as needed. Call out of personnel will be initiated if weather and road conditions warrant a response. The public may report deficient road conditions to the highway office from 8:00AM – 3:30PM Monday thru Friday at 791-3831. After hours reports may be made to the Lewiston Water Pollution Control Center at 754-8291 or the Niagara County Sheriff’s Office at 438 – 3393.
