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. Additionally, the county also does not control stormwater conveyance along NCDOT roadways.
