Public Works

The Public Works Department exists in order to provide the citizens of Tift County with a safe and dependable roadway system. We maintain over 357 miles of paved roads and an additional 198 miles of prescriptive easement/dirt roads.

Typical maintenance activities include asphalt resurfacing, pothole repair, storm water infrastructure repair, erosion control, right-of-way mowing, debris removal, dirt road grading, emergency response/repair, mosquito control, culvert sizing and installation, and traffic control sign placement and upkeep. The work is performed through a combination of in-house crews and contractors.

Tift County residents may direct routine County road system inquiries or requests for service to: (229)382-5248. After hours or emergency calls should be directed to Tift County E911.
