The division for repair and maintenance of existing county roads and right-of-ways.
Welcome to the Roads and Bridges Division of the Forsyth County Engineering Department. Our mission is to provide prompt, efficient and economically work with the proper equipment, and skilled and dedicated employees. We maintain over 1,100 miles of asphalt roads and over 50 miles of gravel roads in Forsyth County.
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.
