Highway Engineering


Department Description

Highway Engineering has more than 100 employees in engineering, highway maintenance and highway construction.  Highway maintenance is handed by 1 of 3 maintenance facilities in the county, each located in a commissioner district.  Highway Engineering maintains and extends the life of Tulsa County roads and bridges. The department's work includes pothole repairs, drainage maintenance, bridge inspections, right-of-way tree trimming and mowing and preventative maintenance on all road surfaces.  Highway Engineering makes travel safer and more cost-effective for Tulsa County motorists and taxpayers.

In addition to roadway maintenance, Highway Engineering maintains the Jenks and Haikey Creek levees, minimizing flood risks to thousands of Tulsa County homes and businesses.  Levee inspections are necessary to ensure that systems will perform as expected, identify deficiencies or areas that need monitoring or immediate repair, identify changes in the levee system over time, collect information to help make informed decisions about future actions, and provide the public with information about the levees on which they rely.  The field inspection also included verification of existing conditions, review of operation logs, identification of changes in the system’s floodplain since construction, and addressing impacts from modifications as a result of emergency response activities.
