Keene has 73 miles of public roads in total.  32 miles are maintained by the town, 13 by the county and 28 by the State.

Town road crews are run by an elected superintendent of highway, presently (2017) Gary Manley.  Call him at 518-576-4755 if you have Town road issues.

The County also has Dept of Public Works  which maintains the Country Roads in town.  You get extra credit if you can identify the 13 miles of county roads.

State Routes 73 and 9N are maintained by Region 1 of the NYS Dept Of Transportation. This region includes Albany and the Capital District.  Their site has information on State DOT projects and road conditions.

It is obvious which are State roads.  You win a prize if you can properly identify which are County roads and which are Town roads.

Road salt used in winter is an issue here.  It corrodes your car along with any other metal around.  Salt pollutes lakes and streams near roads (sand is bad for streams too).  It is getting attention now and alternatives are being tested in sensitive areas.

Remember there are lots of private roads around town as well.  Long gravel driveways, sometimes steep, present their own issues.  They are often not usable in the early spring.
