 Who Owns the Road?

Roadways can be owned by a number of different entities. 

We maintain Palm Beach County owned rights-of-way only.​

Issues within State owned rights-of-way can be directed to the Florida Department of Transportation - District IV.

Issues within municipality owned rights-of-way can be directed to the municipality.

There are also privately owned rights-of-way within the county and maintenance is the responsibility of the private owner.

Our Road Atlas or online GIS system can help determine the owner of the right-of-way.

​If you see an issue within County owned rights-of-way please let us know using the links below.
