Road Re-Surfacing on Hillsborough County Roads

The purpose of road surfacing treatments is to maintain or extend the service life of a road. Hillsborough County maintains approximately 6,000 lane miles of public roads. These roads are in unincorporated Hillsborough County, as well as within the municipalities. The County has developed a method for not only prioritizing the resurfacing of these roads, but also for determining which type of resurfacing treatment should be applied to each road. At present time, the County employs several different types of treatments to roads, based on condition and age. It is the County's goal to apply the correct resurfacing treatment to the roads which have the greatest need, as soon as fiscally possible. Learn more about Road Re-Surfacing >>

Planned Road Surface Treatments in Fiscal Year 2009 (October 2008 - September 2009 for USF

There are no road resurfacing projects planned in this community.

Visit the Unincorporated Hillsborough County Page for a list of all road resurfacing projects.

Sidewalk Projects

Hillsborough County funds the construction of new sidewalks throughout unincorporated Hillsborough County on a yearly basis. The funding for sidewalks falls into two areas of demand: school-focused and other-focused (based on proximity to pedestrian attractors). Through a review of multiple factors, such as school needs, hazardous walking conditions, and publicly-expressed sidewalk needs, a list of recommended projects are funded each fiscal year. Before this list is approved, it is presented to the public in a series of public meetings. Please keep in mind that some projects funded during a fiscal year may not be constructed during that same timeframe. Learn More about Sidewalks >>

Hillsborough County Intersection Improvement Program

Hillsborough County goes through a yearly process to determine what road intersections in the unincorporated county will be improved. These improvements can include: installation of traffic signals and flashing lights, and construction of turn lanes, among other additions. All improvements are approved by the Hillsborough County Board of County Commissioners.

In December, 2006, the Board of County Commissioners initiated a Transportation Task Force (TTF) to take a long view of the County’s transportation system and its escalating needs. The focus was on providing a balanced, multi-modal and fundable transportation system. The TTF strategy addresses a 20-year horizon through two phases: an immediate goal of impacting critical unfunded short term needs using existing funding streams totaling $500 million; and a long-term goal of identifying and recommending approximately $1.5 billion in dedicated existing funding for a strategic multi-modal transportation system. The Task Force recommended 67 intersection improvements (for a total investment of $160 million) throughout Hillsborough County that, in effect, make up the Fiscal Year schedule of improvements to occur in this community.

Hillsborough County Road Maintenance Schedules

To keep the roads and physical infrastructure in unincorporated Hillsborough County operational, there are a number of maintenance tasks that take place on a quarterly basis on county-maintained roads. These include: mowing, picking up litter, street sweeping, and general maintenance activities.

In unincorporated Hillsborough County, there are four service units responsible for the maintenance schedules (i.e. the Central Service Unit or CSU; East Service Unit or ESU; South Service Unit or SSU; and West Service Unit or WSU). If you have any questions, please contact the Public Works Department's Customer Service Center at (813) 635-5400. Learn More about Maintenance Schedules >>

Disclaimer: The dates presented here for the maintenance schedule are estimated dates that might change due to a number of factors that include: changes and variation in weather, unplanned equipment downtime, and other unforeseen circumstances.



Hillsborough County Public Works Department provides street sweeping services to protect the public health and safety. These services address the water quality requirements of the County's National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit, while also reducing the amount of debris entering storm water systems. The level of service as of July 2009 includes only sweeping of designated main roadways and intersections within Hillsborough County three times per year. Each round of sweeping covers a total of approximately 526 miles of roadways. In FY 08 subdivision sweeping was discontinued in order to maximize funding for sweeping main roads and intersections.


The Transportation Maintenance Division schedules its maintenance activities based on one of two methods. The first method is enacted when a report of a deficiency or asset failure is received from a private party, such as a citizen. This report is investigated by a Division Asset Coordinator within seven (7) days of the initial report. If warranted, a work order is generated and scheduled. A priority level of the maintenance requirement is assigned and considered when assigning the scheduled date. Ordinarily, work orders are completed within forty five (45) days of their scheduled date. This parameter is required due to the many uncontrollable variables related to performance of maintenance activities (i.e. equipment failure, poor weather conditions, manpower shortages, etc.) Of course, emergency priority is assigned to work whereby public safety, private property and assets are compromised or threatened. The second method in which the Transportation Maintenance Division schedules its maintenance requirements is dictated by its asset condition coding process. Each year, a percentage of assets are proactively inspected by the Asset Coordination Team and any repair, replacement or maintenance requirements are identified through the creation of a work order.

School Safety Zones

Following are the public schools in USF. Please click on a school to see more information about the school that is maintained by the School District of Hillsborough County. Additionally, there is information on the Hillsborough County School Signs, Markings, and Flashers Enhancement Project. The goal of this project is to upgrade all school safety zones in the county with larger and brighter signs, "SCHOOL" markings and flashers that indicate a reduced speed limit during student arrival and departure of students. A green check mark indicates that the school safety zone has been upgraded.
