The Highway Department is responsible for all roads included on the Warren County Road List.

There are nearly 700 miles of official county roads within the 433-square mile area of Warren County.

Annually, the Highway Department is required to submit a Road List containing specific information about each county road to the County Commission for approval. Previously approved county roads, additions, deletions, changes or corrections are included on the list. Changes or corrections requested at other times during the year must also be submitted to the full commission for approval.

The Highway Department works four ten-hour days each week. The department is on call at all times to handle any road-related emergencies and to clear roads during inclement weather.
