Road Operations Division

The Road Operations Division is the largest Division in the Department and is the most visible of our Divisions. Wherever you live, work or play in Cowlitz County you have likely seen our yellow trucks and equipment on the roads, trimming brush, clearing slides. Even if you haven't seen our crews, you see their work in the quality of the roads, the updated street signs and safety signs, the vegetation trimmed from intersections.
