Roads and Drainage

Roads and drainage systems, intersections, bridges, traffic signals, signs and striping. These are just some of the infrastructure projects Polk's Roads & Drainage Division oversees through the Community Investment Program.

This division is divided into several sections that provide vital services to Polk's residents. These sections include:

  • Traffic Engineering 
  • Transportation Engineering
  • Survey and Mapping
  • Roadway Maintenance
  • Inspection and Testing

ADA Transition Plan

The county's ADA Transition Plan is now available for review. The creation of the transition plan was part of the Roads and Drainage Division's effort to comply with the Americans with Diabilities Act.

The plan inventories physical barriers and identifies potential improvements for sidewalks, multi-use paths, curb ramps, street crossings, driveway crossings, crosswalks, median crossings and pedestrian-activated signal systems. It is always the intent for all individuals with disabilities to be reasonably accommodated by Polk County.
