Operations Division: Road Maintenance
Director | County Engineer Grace Kane P.E.
Operations Division Manager: John Davidson
Special Operations works throughout the County. This crew maintains all signs, guardrails and bridges. It applies the striping and pavement markings on the roads and sprays herbicides to control noxious weeds and vegetation along the roadside. The crew also takes on many special projects such as installing a radio tower for better communication, installing fences around county property, performing maintenance on county owned pits and quarries and solid waste facilities, and helping plan traffic control for special events such as the Tulip Festival and Big Lake Fire Works.
Property owners who do not wish to have their adjoining right of way treated for weeds have the option of maintaining the right of way abutting their property. Agreements to this effect may be signed and returned to 201 East Avon Avenue, Burlington during the hours of Monday-Friday 7:30 am- 4:30 pm, OR emailed to PW_Roads@co.skagit.wa.us. This agreement MUST be filled out by the property owner. There is no charge for this agreement. Questions? Please call 360-416-1480.
