Engineering Services oversees the design and construction of Monroe County's roads, public rights of way, bridges, sidewalks and pedestrian/bike paths. Projects include the replacement or rehabilitation of County bridges, the resurfacing of County roads, installation of drainage improvement on County roads and the construction of new pedestrian/bike paths.

Engineering Services completed a Pavement Management Analysis Report on all County maintained roads in 2014. It prioritizes repairs and resurfacing throughout unincorporated Monroe County. 

Engineering Services Department established a transition plan and is implementing upgrades to Monroe County maintained sidewalks in the Sidewalk ADA Transition Plan.

Roads and Bridges Responsibilities

Roads and Bridges operates from locations in Key West and Key Largo. We maintain 26 County bridges, approximately 312 miles of County roads and rights of way, and the County's pedestrian/bike paths.

Routine maintenance includes trimming trees, mowing rights of way, street sweeping, striping, signage, shoulder work and repairing potholes.

The Engineering Services/Roads and Bridges Department is funded by Local Option and Constitutional Gas Tax funds. Many capital improvement projects, such as road resurfacing, are partially funded by the 1-cent Infrastructure Sales Tax.

Mission Statement

The Department's goal is to provide residents and travelers with safe and well-maintained roads, bridges and bike/pedestrian paths on which to travel -- and to provide visually enjoyable rights of way.
