Gravel Roads
If you are considering moving to a property on a gravel road in the unincorporated portion of Limestone County, there are some things you should consider beforehand. Most importantly, determine with certainty whether the road is maintained by Limestone county or is privately maintained. Before you make your final decision, a phone call to the County Engineer’s office would certainly be advised. If the road is not maintained by the county, you should know exactly who is responsible for the maintenance of the road.

No building inspections are required in Limestone County.
