Spring and summer for the Road Commission means maintaining gravel roads. Dust control (brining) starts in May. Our goal is to apply mineral brine three times during the spring/summer. We have two full-sized brine trucks and a smaller truck that brines the dead end roads. Roads are graded prior to brining. We apply brine according to a schedule. The two larger trucks begin in opposite ends of the county and work their way across to each township for the best efficiency. Please be patient when roads are dusty. We will get to every road as soon as we can. Other maintenance includes mowing, cleaning/replacing culverts, grading and ditching. Be assured that we are working hard to ensure the unpaved county roads are smooth and safe.

About Us

The Missaukee County Road Commission was established in 1928. The Missaukee County Road Commission has a three-member Board of Road Commissioners who are elected by the voters. The Missaukee County Board of Commissioners decides whether road commissioners are appointed or elected. Road Commissioners serve six-year terms. The terms are staggered so that all Commissioners are not up for re-election at the same time.

The county road system consists of both primary and local roads. Primary roads are generally paved roads that function as either minor or major collectors. The local road system consists of all other roads that are under the jurisdiction of the Missaukee County Road Commission. Currently we have 222 miles of Primary Roads and 634 Miles of Local Roads (including seasonal roads). In addition, the Missaukee County Road Commission maintains 132 Lane miles of State Trunkline under contract with the Michigan Department of Transportation.
