Department Description

With 39 full time employees, the Genesee County Highway Department is responsible for maintaining over 260 miles of county roads, 379 bridges and culverts, 343 county-owned vehicles and equipment, the Genesee County Airport and the Genesee County Parks, Recreation and Forestry Division.

The Genesee County Highway Department has focused itself on using funds efficiently and effectively. At the same time, we have enhanced several programs to provide the essential transportation improvements that will last well into the next century.

We are using new technologies to maintain one of the highest quality county highways networks in the state without a growth in expenditures. We are securing federal and state funds to assist with new development. We are also fostering economic growth and education with new infrastructure. We are continually looking at the way we do business to ensure we remain productive.

Through our strong planning, engineering and operational practices, the Genesee County Highway Department has re-emerged as a leader in the community and is once again an example of how local government truly serves the people.
