Road Department

Rural communities need safe, viable roads and multimodal systems to move people from place to place, and to move goods and services to markets, often across long distances. Without reliable and well-maintained transportation networks through rural areas, visitors cannot enjoy travel and recreation opportunities, and businesses cannot ensure delivery of goods.

The Road Department is responsible for maintaining county roads and bridges within the County. The department has 14 employees that include nine equipment operators, one shop mechanic, one 1/2 time building maintenance worker, one roadmaster, one road supervisor, and one management assistant. Two of our employees work at our satellite shop in Halfway.

Baker County consists of over 950 miles of road of which about 192 miles are paved, 512 are gravel, and 250 are dirt/unimproved. We also maintain 88 bridges of various sizes.
