With a firsthand look at how AACDPW maintains our County's 6,715 roads, Axel knows residents can expect high-quality service through the work of the bureau's four divisions - Road Operations, Infrastructure Management, Traffic Engineering, and Administration.  Just as the bureau's services vary between divisions, their area of focus also fluctuate between seasons. 

 
Weather Winter Storms
Many of us are not thinking about snow and ice during the summer, but that's exactly when AACDPW begins planning for the winter season by evaluating our fleet of vehicles and staffing needs. Your Highway Care guide, Axel is among 74 dump trucks working to make our roads safe for residents. As part of our safety procedures, we store 17,000 tons of salt in seven different facilities throughout the County. See the video below to watch Axel in action!
