Engineering Department Mission
The Engineering Department's goal is to provide residents and travelers with a safe and worry-free infrastructure on which to travel.
Aside from U.S. 1 and its rights of way, which are under the purview of the
Florida Department of Transportation
(FDOT), the Engineering Department oversees the design and construction of Monroe County's roads, public rights of way, bridges, sidewalks, and bike paths. The Engineering Department completed a
Pavement Management Analysis Report
on all County maintained roads, to prioritize repairs and resurfacing throughout unincorporated Monroe County. Engineering issues all
right of way use permits
needed throughout the county. The department also maintains U.S. 1 and the county's traffic signals and street lights. Engineering Services Department established a transition plan and is implementing upgrades to Monroe County maintained sidewalks in the
Sidewalk ADA Transition Plan
Roads & Bridges Responsibilities
The Roads and Bridges Department operates from locations in Key West and Plantation Key. Primary responsibilities involve maintaining county roads and rights of way, bike paths, and county bridges.
Routine maintenance procedures, including trimming trees, mowing, street sweeping, striping, signage, shoulder work, and repairing potholes, are performed on a continuous basis. The Roads and Bridges Department is also responsible for:
Cleaning up after storms
Completing additional storm-related projects
Repairing rights of way
Planning & Funding
The department follows the Seven Year Roadway and Bicycle Path Plan as a guide when repairing and resurfacing roads and bridges throughout the county. This department is funded by local option and constitutional gas tax funds.
The mission of the Roads and Bridges Department is to maintain and improve all county roads and bridges and to provide all citizens and visitors of Monroe County with safe and visually enjoyable rights of way on which to travel.
