Rural roadways that are deteriorated beyond the capabilities of normal maintenance repairs are reshaped and resurfaced to provide a new roadway surface.

The Unit maintains 277 bridges, 364 minor structures, 3 ferry landings, and numerous barricades and guardrails throughout the County. roadway signage and marking activities include fabricating, installing and maintaining traffic signs; painting centerlines and other traffic markings; and installing raised pavement markings. During winter and spring high waters, debris is removed from bridge supports. From November through the first week of January, crews remove leaves from the roadway in urban areas. There are approximately 36,000 trees within the County road right-of-ways that are maintained to provide proper clearance for street lights and vehicular traffic.
