The County maintained road system consists of approximately 610 miles of County roads. The roads within the County system vary greatly in width, alignment and surface. Due to budgetary constraints, the County cannot always perform all of the maintenance that we would like to on roads within the existing County road system. The County road budget comes mainly from State gas tax revenues.
Taking additional miles of road into the system does not increase our revenue commensurate with the cost of maintaining the additional road mileage. If the County were to take additional roads into the system, the maintenance of the existing County roads would have to be scaled back. Therefore, it has been the policy of the County Board of Supervisors not to take additional roads into the County road system, except in certain circumstances.
