The responsibility of the DeKalb County Road Department is the safety of the traveling public. The Road Department is responsible for the maintenance and improvement of all roads, bridges and road signs that are under the jurisdiction of DeKalb County. The Road Department is constantly improving whether it be pavement or gravel while taking every measure possible to improve the road network in DeKalb County.
Our goal is to maintain a county road system that is safe and convenient for public travel and to manage the roadside environment, with a view toward preservation.
The DeKalb County Road Department maintains approximately 600 miles of road throughout the 305 square mile county. Along with our maintenance operations, we also maintain many bridges and road signs.
Working with other governmental units, we work hard to locate and maximize every dollar available for road maintenance and construction.
