Highway Department

Welcome to the Town of Amherst Highway Department’s area on the Town of Amherst website.  One of the main goals of this site is to provide residents with up-to-date information on several services provided by the Amherst Highway Department.

The information and schedules on this website will be maintained and updated on a regular basis.  We hope to provide tentative schedules for daily road maintenance, spring cleanup and other time sensitive information.  When we post information it will be on the Town of Amherst’s Home Page and on the Highway Department’s Facebook (Amherst Highway Dept) and Twitter (amhersthighway1) accounts.  This information will allow residents to be informed and better prepared.

If you are having difficulty finding information or have a question or comment, please email Amherst Highway Superintendent Patrick Lucey at plucey@amherst.ny.us
