CLAY COUNTY HIGHWAY DEPARTMENT

ABOUT US

Citizens of rural Clay County rely on quality roads. The Highway Department works hard to make sure Clay County roads are ready in any season. 

During the summer, our crews are mowing roadsides as well as maintaining and resurfacing asphalt, chip seal, and gravel roads throughout the County. In the spring and fall, personnel will be patching potholes, maintaining ditches, cleaning culverts, and cutting brush. Removing snow and ice fill our winter days, along with a variety of road and equipment maintenance tasks. 

With more than 380 miles of roadway, 1900 under-road culverts, and 68 bridges in Clay County we are never short on work to do!

WINTER ROAD MAINTENANCE

The Clay County Highway Department works hard to remove snow and ice from roadways to reduce hazardous driving conditions during winter events. The time needed to clear hazards from roads depends on several factors: duration and intensity of storm, time of day, temperature, and traffic conditions.

During a winter storm, residents are encouraged to stay off the roads completely if possible. If you must drive, please be patient.  Do not try to pass snow removal equipment and stay 300 feet behind snow plows. If you must pass a snow plow, use extreme caution. Trucks and plows can take up more than one lane and the plowed snow may create a cloud that prevents drivers from seeing. Snow plow operators are not allowed to tow or give rides to citizens.
