Highways and Public Works

Department Overview

Other Services


The Department of Highways and Public Works is responsible for ensuring safe and efficient public highways, airstrips, buildings and information systems.

The road is wider than you think...

It’s called a right-of-way, and it is all part of the highway corridor—land set aside for purposes of highway safety and maintenance.

Keeping the right-of-way clear removes driver distractions, keep the highway clear of dangerous contaminants and enables highway maintenance.
