Roads in Brunswick County
In North Carolina, counties do not own or maintain roads.
The North Carolina Department of Transportation owns and maintains many of the roads in Brunswick County; others are maintained by a municipality, or are privately-owned and -maintained. The county also does not control stormwater conveyance along North Carolina Department of Transportation roadways.
- To determine if a road is a State/NCDOT road, go to GIS Online and click the road. If there is a number next to “State Road Number” in the box that pops up, it is a State road. If the area next to “State Road Number” is blank, it is not a State road. Concerns with State roads can be reported to NCDOT.
- If the road is located inside municipal limits and you think the road might be a municipal (city) street, contact that municipality for confirmation or to report a concern.
- If the road is not a State road and is not a municipal road, or is outside municipal limits, then it is privately-owned. This could mean it is owned by a person, but several people, or by an organization like an HOA or POA. The owner or owners of privately-owned roads are responsible for their maintenance and upkeep.
Street maps are available for purchase in the Brunswick County GIS office.
A street name search is available online. Note: this search does not show where the street or road is on a map, or who owns it. It merely shows existing street names, for use when naming a street.
