Road, highway, street, avenue, boulevard -- no matter what it's called, it represents a connection to other people and places, an easy way to get somewhere we want to go. Unfortunately, most of the time we never think about the maintenance of our road system until something goes wrong -- such as a pothole, a snowstorm or a tree down. At such times we may wonder, "Who is fixing this problem?" and "When will it be done?".
Who is fixing this problem?
It depends on the type of road. In Habersham County, there are three categories:
When will it be done? (This information applies to county roads only. Anyone who is interested in how repair is prioritized on their private- or state-maintained road should contact the individual, business or organization responsible for that road.)
It depends on the situation. A pothole that needs to be filled in the southern part of the county may have to wait if a winter storm hits the northern part of the county. A snowplow may leave one road partially done to go plow another so that an ambulance or other emergency vehicle may pass.
Because circumstances can change suddenly, especially during emergencies, the Road Department cannot say, "This street will always be done first, this one second," and so on. For the same reason, neither can our department guarantee that a particular road will be given attention at a particular time.
