A staff of 19 creates the team to perform the maintenance and/or upgrades on county roads, bridges and rights of way. Tasks of the Road & Bridge Department include snowplowing, removal of debris from roadway and rights of way, road repair, crack sealing, pot holes repair, chip sealing, installation of culverts and drainage systems, tree trimming and removal, and sign posting.
Road and Bridge currently maintains 731 total road miles. 245 miles of paved surface and 486 miles of gravel or native soil surfaces. 76 Nationally Registered Bridges with many additional non-registered bridges due to their small size. This maintenance is spread over 3,733 square miles including High Valley and the areas of Warm Lake, Yellow Pine, Big Creek, Bear Valley, Deadwood, and Trails End. Most Back Country Roads are closed through the winter and melt off in the spring. Yellow Pine and Johnson Creek can be accessed year round using the South Fork Road.
A portion of funding for the Road & Bridge Department comes from the State of Idaho Highway User Fund – this fund source is generated from gas tax, vehicle registration and traffic violations.
