The Town of Preble maintains 25.4 centerline miles of roads. Sixteen miles of the 25.4 are plowed, making up 34 plowing segments. We also plow school bus pull-offs, turnarounds, the Fire Station and the Town Hall. The average route time is 2 hrs. 45 minutes.

Summer duties include: culvert replacement/ installation, ditch cleaning, road material hauling and placement (gravel, pavement), oil and stone treatments, cutting brush, mowing roadsides along with maintaining 5 abandoned cemeteries. We also provide the resources for the annual “Town Clean-Up”.

The Town is currently looking to build a new highway garage at the site of the salt building on State Route 281. This building would replace the current 55 year old building located on Otisco Valley Road. This move would consolidate highway operations to one location (first time in 17 years) and allow all machinery to be housed inside. The move will also save on utilities, increase efficiency and ultimately allow the department to provide better service to the taxpayers.

Please feel free to call the highway garage at 607-749-2710 with any questions.
