    The Montgomery County Highway Department works hard to maintain 844 miles of roadway, including 64 miles of paved roads, 460 miles of chip seal roads and 322 miles of gravel roads. We maintain 179 bridges and have over 3,800 road signs and markers.

    Our main goal is to improve existing roads in order to mitigate road surface life cycles and allow safe travel on our community’s roadways. With our focus on proactive road improvements, we are hoping to become a statewide leader and example for other county highway departments.
