The Geneva County Highway Department manages the County’s Road and Bridge network. Management of this network is done through the unit system, a system by which the County Commission employs a County Engineer who supervises and directs the daily operations of the County’s Highway Department. Presently, the county’s road and bridge network consists of 402 miles of paved road, 505 miles of unpaved road, and 168 bridge structures.

Construction projects play a large role in the Geneva County Highway Department. Engineering personnel plan, design and inspect construction activities on all federal, state and county funded projects. These include resurfacing and rehabilitation of our paved road network and replacement and rehabilitation of our county bridges.

The County Engineer is also responsible for regulating the subdivision and development of land in the County’s unincorporated areas.  All division of land is subject to the County’s Subdivision Regulations. These regulations may be viewed and printed from this website or purchased at the Geneva County Engineer’s Office.

As of this time Geneva County does not have any type of zoning or building regulations located within its rural jurisdiction.  We also do not issue certificates of occupancies.

Any request to install utilities on Geneva County right of way, shall come through or office first for evaluation and approval.  A permit must be obtained before any work is to begin.
