Right-of-way clearing and maintenance

A right-of-way is granted to a utility company—such as power, electricity, internet, or cable company—over a portion of a privately-owned property where a utility is located, as well as the land directly surrounding. The utility company is responsible for ensuring that this right-of-way is free of vegetation and accessible for maintenance and emergency.

If left unchecked, the right of way can easily be overtaken by trees, its branches, and vegetation. These pose the following risks:

  • Trees close to roads pose a hazard to vehicles. Also, overgrowth along roadways tends to force traffic toward the centerline, reducing mutual clearance with on-coming traffic. It also causes heaving and cracking of the road due to root and trunk growth.
  • Overgrowth in intersection right-of-way obstructs the driver’s line of sight and may cause vehicular accidents in these areas. Also, in addition to the sightline obstruction, the growth of brush on the road forces drivers to drive toward the centerline increasing the likelihood of an incident.
  • Low brush and clutter in the shoulder areas degrade maintenance efforts. It also obstructs the clearing of road surfaces.
  • The shadow formed by the trees beside the road creates a canopy that stops the drying of a puddle which might cause an accident. It will also accelerate road deterioration because of the long exposure to moisture. Excessive canopy and growth along roadways diminish lighting conditions. So having it cleared will allow more light in and it will increase visibility.
  • Trees in close proximity to roads increase the number of leaves shed onto the road. The leaves on the road end up hindering the drainage of water and may create slippery driving conditions during a downpour. In addition, it increases the probability of blowdown and ice storm impacts. Because of particular storm impacts (or even randomly), trees and limbs may fall into or over the roadway, impeding traffic, or into utility lines right of way, disrupting service. 
  • Also, moving the clearing limit further from the edge of pavement discourages some wildlife activity close to the road which reduces accidents involving animals.

Right of way cutting and clearing reduces these risks by having a right-of-way clearing program to ensure that right-of-way cutting and clearing is done right. Doing the maintenance as early as possible prevents vegetation growth which saves on expenses, since bigger vegetation are costlier to remove, and it provides greater aesthetic value.
