Highway Maintenance Department
The Highway Maintenance Department provides for the safe and efficient operation of all county roadways.
Our normal yearly maintenance starts with snow and ice control during winter months. Springtime brings our crews to pothole patching, shoulder repairs and ditch cleaning. Road repairs continue into summer with base repairs and culvert installations in preparation of resurfacing and chip sealing. Each year our road crews chip seal greater than 30 miles of road from mid summer into early fall.
In-house bridge replacements and repairs, sign installations, guardrail repairs, mowing, weed control and other maintenance projects occur on a regular basis. The severity of the weather greatly affects the time frame and the nature of our daily tasks.
