Snow Removal and County Right of Ways

Clay County, MN – The Clay County Sheriff’s Office and Highway Department ask landowners not to push snow into the right of way and ditches of county highways. Limits of the right of way include the roadway in-slope, ditch bottom and back-slope of the roadway.

Pushing snow into right of ways and ditches can exaggerate drifting problems experienced on highways. These drifts can create an obstruction for motorists. State law prohibits a person from obstructing, or causing to be obstructed, any public highway or right of way.
