Operation and Maintenance
The Weld County Operation and Maintenance Divisions within Public Works manage the county road system by providing maintenance of the transportation system. We strive to provide a safe and economical transportation infrastructure to the travelling public within the County. We make sure unincorporated Weld County’s road system is ready for you, your family, and friends.
Together, the six operation and maintenance divisions manage over 2900 miles of paved and gravel roads within the County. That’s like driving from the West Coast to the East Coast. In addition they also maintain:
Several hundred bridges and cattle guards
Thousands of signs and culverts
Thousands of miles of borrow ditches and striping
The Operation and Maintenance Divisions are responsible for routine, planned, and emergency maintenance of the public Right-of-Way (ROW) infrastructure. Services include:
Borrow ditch cleaning
Bridge replacement and maintenance
Culvert installation and maintenance
Hauling road materials
Road grading and dust suppression
Roadside vegetation maintenance
Signing and road striping
and numerous other maintenance tasks
Weld County Operation and Maintenance endeavors to effectively use our resources. This includes recycling our asphalt milling material to shoulder paved roadside projects; place millings on identified dust suppression roads to reduce maintenance activities. Operation and Maintenance have utilized compressed natural gas (CNG) for maintenance vehicles from 1/2 ton pick-ups to tandem axel plow trucks.
Weld County Code
