Please be patient and courteous!

After a snow storm, each of our drivers has approximately 50 miles of road to plow. The driver’s concern is getting roadways clear in a safe and timely manner. Homeowners get very upset when the snowplow or more often, heavy, wet snow damages their mailbox, scatters garbage or fills their driveway. But snow coming off a  plow going 35 miles per hour has surprising force that can topple objects in the road right-of-way. These actions are not intentional by our drivers. Blades cannot be lifted or turned when passing driveways, mailboxes or private roads. Our drivers work long hours and take pride in their work. Please be patient before calling the road commission to inquire as to when your road will be plowed. Drivers must follow a regular route to provide the most efficient snowplowing service and there are reasons why things are done the way they are. Also, to best manage our finances, plowing on weekends is focused on main roads as this is all overtime for our drivers. Calling to alert us of an unsafe condition is helpful and appreciated. Please be courteous when calling and understand that plowed snow, icy roads, difficult conditions and even damaged mailboxes or posts are part of winter in Northern Michigan.

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.
