Land owners asked not to put snow into the right-of way of roads and highways.

The Grand Forks County Highway Department is requesting landowners not to push snow into the right-of way, which includes the roadway, inslopes, ditch bottoms, backslopes, and around mailboxes of any public roadway, including the portion of the driveway within the public right-of-way. This would include State, County and Township roadways. This practice can exaggerate the drifting problems experienced on roadways and can create obstructions for motorists.

Pursuant to NDCC 24-06-28 - State law prohibits a person from obstructing, or causing to be obstructed, any public highway or right-of-way.

Please call the County Highway Department with questions at 701-780-8248.
