The Roads Division is responsible for the approximately 525 miles of County-owned roads on Camano and Whidbey Islands*.  We strive to provide the best possible road system both now and in the future. We achieve this through ongoing work such as installing signs and guardrails, paving, striping and mowing, as well as development of new construction projects to improve safety or operations.

In addition, many of us are on call 24-hours a day so we can respond as quickly as possible to downed trees, snow and ice, and other hazards.

*Please note that state highways, city & town streets, and private drives are not part of the County’s road system.
