What We Do
The San Juan County Road Department maintains roads and associated infrastructures within unincorporated areas of San Juan County. Inside the area of about 7,929 square miles that makes up San Juan County.
The Road Department maintains 1610 miles of dirt roads, 745 miles of gravel roads, and 371 miles of paved roads. Maintaining these roads includes grading, asphalt maintenance, chip sealing, snow removal, and maintenance of borrow ditches and flood channels within the road right of ways.
The San Juan County Road Department is gearing up for a busy Summer for the 2018 Construction Season.
San Juan County has successfully installed a revolutionary product for testing on County Roads. The three roads that have been treated are B2481- Landfill Road, B110 Dude Ranch and B1261- Guest Ranch Spur. The product is incorporated by spreading the dry material on the surface then utilizing a road grinder/reclaimer it is ground into the existing materials to the specified depth and then shaped, compacted and sealed with a double pin chip seal. The completed product is very similar to an asphalt paved road. If the product performs to manufacturer claims, San Juan County will be able to greatly improve roads at a fraction of the cost for conventional full replacement costs of our aging road inventory.
