Check out which County roads may be impacted from construction, repair, or movement of heavy equipment on our Road Closure page.

The Roads Section of DPW is responsible for maintaining nearly 2,000 miles of roads in the County-maintained system which serve some 400,000 residents of the unincorporated County each day. The Department of Public Works maintains roads in unincorporated areas of the County only. If you live in one of the 18 incorporated cities, visit their websites.
