What We do

Our main priority is to keep the roads safe!

Residents who operate vehicles on Town roads rely on the Highway Department to keep them moving. The Town of Eden Highway Department maintains more than 48.98 center lane miles of roadway. In addition, hundreds of catch basins are maintained, as well as miles of storm water drains. The Highway Department also assists in the removal of trees that have fallen in severe weather and clears dead animals from Town roads.
