The Gilmer County Road Department and Shop, numerous in personnel and equipment, are given the task of construction and maintenance of the road and capital infrastructure of Gilmer County.

Road Department personnel, nearly 30 strong, are directed by Superintendant Ronnie Chadwick, who has more than 16 years of dedicated service to the County. With nearly 500 miles of County maintained roads in one of North Georgia's largest and mountainous counties, the tasks of the Road Department are numerous and widespread, including mowing, clearing and chipping, drainage repair and maintenance, motor grading, re-surfacing, road widening, and new road construction. The Gilmer County Road Department faithfully maintains and improves the County Road System on a regular basis, as well as serving on-call during inclement weather and emergency situations.

The Gilmer County Maintenance Facility, or "Shop", is comprised of three mechanics and laborers under the direction of Shop Manager Mitch Coleman. The duties of the shop not only encompass the repairs and maintenance to the Road Department equipment, but also extend to others, including Fire Department and EMS.
