Road Maintenance

Brady Township has appointed Robert McConnell as the Roadmaster for 21.75 miles of roads.  The Roadmaster, along with working supervisors provides the community with road maintenance and repairs.   They also are responsible for storm sewer and drainage work as well as snow and ice removal, street signs, equipment and vehicle maintenance.

Brady Township road crew makes every effort to keep the road cleared during inclement weather.  Please be aware that Brady Township is only responsible for snow removal on local municipal roads.  This does not include Route 8, Route 173 and Route 528.  If you have issues with these roads, please contact PennDOT at 724-284-8800 for questions or complaints.


When the snow starts to fall, please keep in mind a few do's and don't:

  • Do keep access to your mailbox cleared for postal service; this is the responsibility of the resident.
  • Do not shovel snow onto the road.
  • Try not to park on the street during snow removal time.

A truck with a raised plow does not necessarily mean your area has been completed.  They may be returning for fuel, additional materials, assisting in an emergency, etc.  The state and county are responsible for state and county roads.

Private roads and private lanes are not the township's responsibility.  If you see a township road condition that needs attention, please call the township roadmaster, Robert McConnell, at 724-679-1073.

Snow Removal

In order to assist the Roadmaster during snow removal, we suggest the following:

  • Do not park in the street.  The snow plows are unable to perform their jobs properly with a vehicle in their way.
  • Do not shovel or plow snow from your driveway or walkway into the street.  This creates a hazardous condition for all vehicles.  Snow should be shoveled or plowed to the right side of the driveway as you are facing the intersecting roadway.  By piling the snow away from the oncoming direction of the snow plows, the snow will not be pushed back onto the driveway.
  • If your vehicle should become stuck in the snow, do not abandon it in the roadway.  Get it moved over to the curb or berm so that snow plows and emergency vehicles can get past it.
  • When following a salt truck, keep a safe distance.  Expect trucks to make sudden stops or turn while in the operation of snow removal.
  • When calling the Roadmaster for service, keep messages simple and direct.  Be certain to state the problem and its location.
