The purpose of this study was to investigate on factors influencing implementation of County roads Project in Isiolo County. The objectives of the study were: to determine how public participation influences implementation of county roads projects; to examine extent to which human resource influences implementation of county roads projects; to establish how financial disbursement influences implementation of the County roads projects, and to examine how politics influences implementation of county road projects. The study adopted a descriptive survey design. The population of the study was 370 individuals drawn from the Isiolo County employees in the Treasury and the departments of Transport and Infrastructure and Public Participation; registered road contractors and community leaders. A sample of 170 individuals was drawn from the population. Data was collected using three different questionnaires for respective groups. Data analysis was conducted by coding and entering data into Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS), from which frequency tables were constructed and data presented in tables. The study established that public participation had a strong positive influence on implementation of county road projects; human resources had a moderate positive influence of implementation of county road projects; financial disbursement had a strong positive influence on implementation of county road projects, and politics had a strong negative influence on implementation of county road projects. The study concluded that Isiolo County people did not participate actively in the process of road projects implementation; that the county government had adequate human resource for road projects implementation; that financial disbursement for road projects was timely, and that political interference was high and detrimental to implementation of county road projects. The study recommends that public participation in the planning, design, tendering and monitoring of road projects be mandatory; that human resource for county road projects be recruited on merit; that road project funds be disbursement in time, and that political interference in county road projects be curtailed as much as possible
