NEW! County Road Maintenance Dashboard
There is now an easy way to see what projects are currently underway on our county-maintained roads. This Valley County Road Maintenance Dashboard provides the most current data on projects and maintenance (mobile view not supported).
Keep informed on:
- Current projects
- Conditions of our paved road network
- Conditions and maintenance needs for bridges and culverts
- What roads are maintained as summer only or year round by the County
- Which roads are maintained as part of FRTA agreeements
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.
*Currently no Property Taxes are used to fund the Road & Bridge Department.
