Within unincorporated areas of the TNRD, maintenance of all highways and local roads is a service provided by the Province of BC through contractors. In fact, no regional district in B.C. has jurisdiction over road maintenance. This differs from the process in municipalities.

Within TNRD boundaries, all provincial highways and local roads (outside of municipalities) are maintained by private contractors. In B.C., the boundaries for maintenance of these roads are split up into Service Areas.

- Service Area 13 (Okanagan/ Shuswap)
- Service Area 14 (Nicola)
- Service Area 15 (Thompson)
- Service Area 16 (South Cariboo)
- Service Area 20 (Robson)
