Planning and Design

Pavement Management Program

– The Pavement Management Program is an annual paving and rehabilitation program intended to extend and preserve the life of Sumter County maintained roadways. Each year, the County prioritizes its projects based on funding, safety, and a condition assessment called the Pavement Condition Index (PCI). These inspections rate the condition of the roads based on the severity and types of distress. The annual Pavement Management Program will provide a list of roadway resurfacing candidates.

Advanced Traffic Management System (ATMS)

– The ATMS Program is Sumter County’s traffic signals program that is engaged in creating a smarter, more connected systematic interface. This program aims to upgrade current signals, deploy closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras, implement detection systems, and install emergency pre-emption devices.


– This program will provide for the maintenance and inventory of the existing sidewalk network and propose new additional segments within the County. The program includes the construction and upgrading of the existing sidewalks to meet Americans with Disabilities (ADA) compliance.


- The Stormwater Program analyzes watershed basin studies and implements best management practices as recommended per study. The following watersheds are under the maintenance and review by Sumter County: Gum Slough, Jumper Creek, Little Jones Creek, Big Jones Creek, Withlacoochee, Big Prairie, Gant Lake, Gum Swamp, Lady Lake, Lake Miona, Half Moon, Lake Okahumpka, Lake Deaton, Outlet River, Robinson Lake, Shady Brook, Helena Run, Clearwater Lake, Bushnell.

Utility Permitting

– A utility permit requires the installation, maintenance, and operation of utility facilities such as pipelines, pole lines, buried cable, and conduits upon state highway right of way and properties under the jurisdiction of the Department of Transportation. Please email us to request an application.

Traffic Studies

– The County conducts traffic studies to determine safety measures that can be implemented to improve the safety of the existing intersection or analysis corridor. Traffic studies are completed through collecting traffic counts, analyzing crash history data, and upgrading roadway infrastructure to present-day engineering standards.
