The Kitsap County Road Maintenance and Operation Division is responsible for maintaining and preserving over 900 miles of roadway in unincorporated Kitsap County. To do this, the County is divided into three road maintenance districts—north, central and south. Each district has experienced staff and necessary resources available to make sure our roads are safe for travel.

The Division also maintains structures that lie within the County Right of Way that support the roadway. These structures include, roadside shoulders, ditches and culverts, sidewalks, guardrails, bulkheads and seawalls, and bridges. (RCW 36.82.070)
The P3 program uses computer analysis, hands-on experience, and information from the public to develop a multi-year plan identifying targeted roads and type of surface preservation treatment required. Treatments are determined by cost, roadway usage, location and age of last treatment.
Surface treatments include:

The County provides an "Owner Will Maintain (OWM)" program to residents who prefer to maintain their own landscaping in the Right of Way.
