ABOUT DPW ROADS
The Roads Section is responsible for nearly 2,000 miles of County roads – enough to drive from San Diego across the country to Pensacola, Florida.
Maintaining this extensive roadway system is more than just filling potholes and installing road signs. County road crews grind out and resurface entire sections of worn out and damaged road way. They help maintain our bridges, repair damaged guardrails, traffic lights and streetlights, paint the roadway striping, legends and crosswalks, and plow the mountain roads during and after the winter storms. They also maintain the right-of-way, making sure vegetation doesn’t obstruct your view when pulling out onto the road. They clean out storm drains and channels, replace worn out and rusted under-the-roadway culverts, and even put out the signs to warn you when a roadway is flooded and not safe to cross. They even help close off the street when you plan that special event in your community.
It’s all to keep our roads safe and passable – so we can all “Live Well.”
