News – Highway Dept. Receives Award

Town Highway Department receives Cornell Local Roads Program recognition

The Cornell Local Roads Program (CLRP) would like to recognize the Town of Rochester Highway Department for their outstanding commitment to innovation. The Department displayed exemplary ingenuity in the development of “”The Slider.” This innovation allows the department to effectively remove debris and clean the area under and around guiderails, saving both time and money.

The Department was recognized through the CLRP Build a Better Mousetrap Competition; a statewide program that gives highway and public works departments the opportunity to share cost-saving projects they have developed to solve everyday problems. Entries are judged under the criteria of cost, implementation, transferability and commonality of the problem solved.

In creating ‘The Slider,” the Town of Rochester Highway Department demonstrated outside-the-box thinking by finding a creative solution to a common problem. Their willingness to share their innovation with the rest of the New York State highway community shows generosity and a spirit of good will.
