Road Operations Engineering
The Road Operations Engineering Section of the Transportation Division consists of two groups – the Road Operations Engineering group which is focused on maintenance of the County Maintained Road system, and the Encroachments group which regulates activities by outside forces within the County Road Right of Way.
Road Operations Engineering is focused on maintenance of the County Maintained Road system. This group oversees the County’s pavement management program which includes the design and contracting of pavement resurfacing projects on County maintained roadways. Operations Engineering also designs and contracts maintenance related and emergency repair projects, provides road crew design support, performs record keeping & research for the County Maintained Road system, handles reporting requirements for various road funding sources, and responds to public inquires about the County Maintained Road system.
Encroachments processes and issues permits to the public and/or other agencies for the performance of work in the County Road Right of Way. An "encroachment" may include structures, facilities, or objects of any kind placed in the County Road Right of Way. The Encroachments group conducts engineering plan review and construction inspection for subdivisions and other private projects performing work in County’s Right of Way, is responsible for issuing permits for special use of the County Road Right of Way such as Event and Transportation Permits, and investigates unpermitted encroachment issues that arise within the County Road Right of Way such as unpermitted signs or structures, private vegetation obstructing the roadway, etc.
