Each county has a designated engineer who works closely with the county supervisors to build, maintain and operate a road system suited to rural citizens and traffic.
New openings for engineers, assistants, technicians, administrative staff and maintenance personnel come open every year.
Counties design, let, and inspect many construction and maintenance projects each year. This work renews bridges, restores pavement, and improves safety.
Counties must often restrict or close roads on account of emergency conditions, embargos, maintenance work and projects. The 511 section provides current road usabilty.
