Three miles of road added in county areas last year

The county added a little more than three miles of road last year, and dropped half a mile, according to a report from its Public works Department.

Maintaining the new roads will cost $72,907, according to the report, which will be presented to the Board of Supervisors Tuesday.

Public Works keeps track of the mileage because the number of miles of maintained road “is a factor in determining the gas tax allocation.” It must be submitted annually to the state.

The county maintains 1,332 miles of road, according to the report.

The half mile it lost is an “adjustment.being made to the previous paper records, not the physical road network,” according to the report.
