Highway Division: Maintains and repairs, in a reasonably safe and cost effective manner, the County roads that have been accepted by the Cochise County Board of Supervisors and are included in the Cochise County Road Maintenance System and makes improvements and construct new roads as funds are available and at the direction of the Cochise County Board of Supervisors.
Floodplain Division: Provides Cochise County citizens with education on flood hazards, building requirements, and information about the National Flood Insurance Program in order to reduce flood damage and maintain the environmental benefits provided by floodplains.
Transportation Planning Division: Prepares long-range transportation plans, coordinates Federal, State and local funds for transportation projects, collects demographic and traffic data, and maintains partnerships with Federal, State, Regional and Jurisdictional agencies on transportation projects, plans and studies.
Operations Maintenance Division: Conducts field work from five individual Road Yard bases (Highway Maintenance Yards) in the North and South districts. Crews cover County Maintained roads according to prioritized scheduling and approved work plans, and routine maintenance activities range from the grading of native surfaced roads and the repair or preservation of paved road surfaces, to drainage and other roadside maintenance. A wide variety of additional work is performed to maintain structures and guarantee safe driving conditions on roads within the network of County Maintained Roads. Seasonal projects may include the combined resources of more than one Road Yard Crew and equipment shared by both North and South Districts. Crews may be spread out over hundreds of square miles performing routine maintenance activities, emergency repairs and storm patrols, or they may converge during chip seal season to construct and pave roads or perform other highly visible surface maintenance projects.
No matter the job, the presence of our Operations Maintenance Crews and other Highway & Floodplain support staff is vital to the transportation needs of citizens in every corner of Cochise County.
