The Highways and Bridges Division is responsible for maintaining the structural integrity and safe traveling conditions of county owned roads within Ulster County and many bridges, including the right-of-ways associated with each. It also maintains roads and parking lots that are the property of the County and utilized by other County departments. The work ranges from sweeping and plowing road and bridge surfaces, to complete reconstruction of both roads and bridges. The division maintains its own fleet of light and heavy equipment and the personnel to operate and repair it. Due to the size of the County, and traveling time involved in traversing it, the department maintains ten substations with small crews and limited equipment to ensure the most economical road maintenance throughout the County.
Meetings with the Commissioner or with section supervisors require an appointment. Offices are located on the first floor of the Joseph Y Resnick Building. Maps are available at this location only.
Fees for Services: There is a charge of $5.00 for maps if picked up or $5.50 if mailed.
Method of Payment: Cash or check payable to the Ulster County.
