The Greene County Highway Department is responsible for maintaining approximately 8,000 acres of right of way divided into four districts. Within this right of way lies approximately 3,000 lane miles of roadway, 210 bridges, and more than 700 box culverts. To meet the task of maintaining this right of way, the Highway Department employs over 100 people. Each employee plays an integral part of our operations, which make up three divisions. The Operations Division includes our maintenance crews, who strive daily to keep our roadways safe and passable for the traveling public. Some of their duties include hand patching, shoulder stabilization, paving, sign maintenance, striping, vegetation control, pipe and guardrail installation, bridge & box culvert maintenance and snow removal. The Engineering/Inspection Division consists of engineers and inspectors who review and approve plans, inspect road and bridge construction projects and enforce county standards in subdivision development and work performed in the right of way. The Administrative Division handles day to day operations such as finance, clerical, human resources, and public relations.
