Engineering & Secondary Road Department
"Make Good Roads"
The Linn County Secondary Road Department maintains 1,147 miles of roads and 259 bridges. Approximately 378 miles (32%) of the road system is hard surfaced (asphalt, concrete or seal coat) and the remaining is rock surfaced. The County is divided into four maintenance districts which provide the following services: snow removal, drainage maintenance, road blading, shoulder maintenance, roadway patching, dust control, pavement markings, right-of-way conformance, roadside plantings and mowing, sign maintenance, etc.
"Road To Be Closed For Improvement" or "Road Improvements Scheduled" signs will soon be place throughout Linn County to help prepare the travelling public for upcoming construction within rural Linn County.
