Highway Department

Welcome from the Director

Welcome to the Boone County Highway Department home page.  Our department exists to maintain and improve the highway network for all of our residents, business owners and visitors.  Boone County is one of Indiana’s fastest growing counties and our Department’s largest challenge is keeping up with the anticipated growth without jeopardizing the condition of our existing system.   

 

I encourage you to visit this site regularly to keep informed of upcoming projects, road & bridge maintenance activities and other pertinent information regarding Boone County’s roads and bridges.  We believe this site will provide you most of the information you need, but we value hearing from you.  Please do not ever hesitate contacting our office with your questions or concerns.  We’d love to hear from you!

 

Sincerely,

Craig Parks

Boone County Engineer  

About the Highway Department

The Boone County Highway Department is responsible for all roads, bridges, and small structures (less than 20-foot span) within Boone County which are not state highways and which are not within the corporate limits of a city or town. We are also responsible for bridges which have a span of 20 or more feet on all roads in Boone County which are not state highways. 

 

Boone County has 12 townships with over 700 miles of roadway and rights-of-way, 189 bridges, and over 300 small structures to maintain. The Boone County Highway Department strives for safe, accessible and efficient roadways, and continues to work to improve the transportation infrastructure for the citizens of Boone County.

Highway News

 

On August 6, 2018, a construction contract for the repair of Bridge 32 was executed by the Board of Commissioners. The Highway Department would like to thank the Bridge 32 Preservation Committee for their efforts in raising funds to preserve a century old structure. Nearly two years ago, the historical bridge was damaged in a hit and run accident, which was believed to be a piece of farm equipment. Because of the Preservation Committee’s dedication and fundraising efforts, Bridge 32 over Sugar Creek, will be restored to its original state soon.
