Road Maintenance & Repair
The Roads & Bridges Department maintains and repairs roads which have been accepted by Berkeley County for maintenance. Unpaved roads are graded on a continuing basis with rocking, culvert repairs, roadside vegetation control, and stabilization performed as needed. This includes over 219 miles of roads divided into four (4) zones. Maintenance and repair is also performed on over 295 miles of paved roads.
The Department maintains most of the overall drainage system in Berkeley County, including major channels in the rural areas and piped and open ditch systems in subdivisions and municipalities.
The Department also provides Pollution Prevention/Good Housekeeping efforts to meet County Stormwater MS4 permit requirements.

- Bushy Park (Cooper River & Back River)
- Durham Creek
- Quenby Creek (Ralph Hamer Landing)
