Office Hours: Monday - Thursday 7:00 - 5:30
"Our mission is to provide service to the resident’s of Bradford County expeditiously and as efficiently as possible."
BradfordCounty has approximately 319 miles of county maintained roads. Some are paved, others are dirt, lime rock, etc. With weather permitting, there is always at least one (1) grader on the needed roads. We try to keep all roads well maintained by pulling ditches as much as possible. On our paved roads all potholes are repaired when reported or spotted on our routine inspections. The weather is a major factor in road maintenance.
Drainage ditches provide a means for controlling the direction of the flow of storm water and help to prevent flooding. Ditches are maintained by excavation or the removal of overgrown vegetation.
The county will sell and install a culvert to any residential property that is located on a county maintained road. The fee for such installation is basically at cost, as the attached *price list will concur. This is a service we offer but is limited to property owner residences only.
