Welcome to the Roads and Bridges Division where we maintain over 1,100 miles of asphalt roads and over 50 miles of gravel roads in Forsyth County. We are a division of the Forsyth County Engineering Department. The primary mission is the repair and maintenance of existing county roads and rights-of-way promptly, efficiently and economically, using well-planned activities, proper equipment, and skilled and dedicated employees.
Within this mission, the Roads and Bridges Division is responsible for, but not limited to: pothole patching, milling and deep-patching operations in conjunction with LARP and county resurfacing contracts, rights-of-way mowing and tree trimming/removal/chipping, drainage ditch and storm water structure repair, cross and side drain repair and replacement, shoulder construction and repair, hydro seeding, preparation and oversight of calcium chloride application to gravel roads, and bridge repair (as needed).
Division personnel also respond to emergencies and natural and man-made disasters 24 hours a day, seven days a week by removing roadway debris resulting from vehicular accidents, clearing storm-related debris from roadways, plowing and spreading salt during ice and snow events, and closing and barricading roads which have been determined to pose a danger to drivers.
