Who owns, maintains and plows my road?

South Fayette Township contains roadways that are owned and / or maintained by three separate political entities:

  • South Fayette Township owns and maintains approximately 77 miles of local roadways within South Fayette, plus maintains 46 miles of state roads through contractual agreements
  • Allegheny County maintains the roads that it owns
  • State-owned roads are maintained by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT), or by South Fayette under a maintenance agreement.

Other streets are privately owned by individuals, developers and homeowner associations. All road owners are responsible for providing their own maintenance, such as paving, storm drain repair and snow plowing.
