Roads LogoThe Roads Division is committed to providing citizens with the best possible service and public safety through maintenance and improvements of County roads.

County roads are named roads such as St. Charles Pkwy and Billingsley Road. Private roads are designated with a diamond in the corner of the road sign and usually end in Place. State roads are numbered roads such as Rt 488 and Rt 5; these often have a name associated with them (i.e. La Plata Road and Leonardtown Road). Examples of road signs are provided below under the Sign Maintenance section.
