 Road and Bridge

Bannock County Road & Bridge is a division of the Bannock County Public Works department.  It is tasked with maintaining 466 miles of road.  Of the 466, 300  miles are paved.  Bannock County  Road & Bridge is only responsible for roads that lie within the County,  outside of city limits (excluding those roads that lie within the Downey/Swan Lake District).  The tasks include snow removal, winter maintenance, chip sealing, hot mix overlay, RAP  overlay, cold asphalt overlay, mag, road re-construction, patching, pugging,  ditch work, tree trimming, scrub coats, crack sealing, seal coat, sign and  culvert maintenance and bridge construction/maintenance.

In the last few years the EPA has set stricter regulations that  include storm water control and erosion maintenance.   This effects the way Road & Bridge does business.  We have made the necessary adjustments to maintain compliance with the new standards.

The majority of Road & Bridge revenue comes from the states distribution fund which is a flat .25 cents per gallon of fuel bought state wide.   The state keeps 50% and the other 50% is distributed to the local City’s  and County’s based on miles of maintained road.

Emergency Services




The Road & Bridge County shop was originally  located at the County fairgrounds  near the old infirmary.   That building was destroyed by a fire July 7, 1942.  Practically all of the County road equipment was also destroyed in this fire. At that time, during WWII, the County chose to lease a building.   When they were notified that the lease was about to expire and would not be renewed, the County had to send a proposal to the War Production 
Board to have them grant permission for Construction.  The Conservation Order L-41 (a) 1075.1  “limits construction.  It is necessary in order to conserve materials, construction equipment, labor  and transportation”.  April 23, 1945 Bannock County wrote to the Board to request permission to construct a new  facility and three days later they received an application that had to be filled out giving a complete picture of the need and actual necessity of the proposed construction.  It was also required to return a copy of the eviction notice form the building owner of the leased facility.  The War Production Board  granted the County permission and the official open house was October 26, 1946.
