Frequently Asked Questions

Q:
Is my road County Maintained?
A:

The Road & Bridge Department maintains road in the un-incorporated area that has been approved by Commissioners Court.  You can complete a “Request for Assistance” form and all our roads that we maintain will be available for you to select from.  If the road you are looking for is not found in the list, you can complete a request under the “Not a County Road” or give us a call and we will help you determine who’s jurisdiction the road is in.

The interactive Landmark Map can help you determine if your road is county maintained as well.  Just turn on the transportation layer and all the county maintained roads will be displayed in either blue or green.
