A Look Ahead for Galveston County Road & Bridge
The Galveston County Road & Bridge department had a busy 2019. Crews were able to repave and perform maintenance on nearly 60,000 linear feet of county roads. This was the first year recycled material has been used for repaving. The Galveston County Commissioners Court approved the purchase of a milling machine in 2018 that allows for old material to be recycled and reused for new paving projects, saving the county taxpayers money.
In addition to the road maintenance, Road & Bridge completed 28 drainage projects adjacent to county roads. There are 22 road drainage projects slated for 2020. There are also some non-road related drainage projects planned for this year. Improvements to the J Road Ditch in Hitchcock, Willow Bayou in Santa Fe, and Dickinson Bayou west of I-45 are planned to start in next 10 months.
