Roads & Bridges
Danny Thrower, Manager
We pledge to the citizens of Berkeley County that we will repair, maintain and preserve the roadways, drainage systems and boat landings to the highest standards; therefore, providing the highest standard of living possible and improving the quality of life for all of our citizens.
Services provided by the Roads & Bridges Department Include:
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 six (6) zones. Maintenance and repair is also performed on over 160 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.

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