County Snow Removal near Tioga Pass

Currently the Department of Public Works Road Operations are responsible for 679.26 miles of county roadway, not including private roads or drives. The County's land area has been divided into five "road areas " which employ 3 or more employees each.  These employees maintain county roads by doing minor repairs and snow removal during the winter months. When a county road needs extensive repairs or when class 4 roads receive enough snow accumulation, those roads will be listed on the County's Road Closure web page.
