Picture of the Week

Road ditches are important parts of our infrastructure and help us to maintain our roads by both directing water away from them and intercepting it before it contacts the road.
Road ditches are categorized by shape: “V,” “U” and trapezoid, and are chosen based on the needs for each project. While the Delaware County Department of Public Works’ Road Crew digs the ditches, our specialty Guide Rail Crew installs guide rails where needed, based on factors such as the depth and steepness of the ditch.
The Guide Rail Crew handles all installation, removal, and repair of guide rails along roads and bridges. Installation includes placement, setting, post pounding and anchoring as well as replacement when they fail. This crew’s job is physically demanding despite our post driver truck.
Even this late in the year, you may see our crews out on the road performing ditch maintenance. Please be careful when driving around the crew and its equipment for their safety and yours.
