Fond du Lac County Highway Commission’s purpose is to provide a safe, convenient transportation system within the county to promote economic viability and protect the public investment of our existing and future highway system. We do this by constructing and maintaining over 384 miles of county highways, which include 61 bridges, that link our communities together. These interconnecting highways provide an efficient platform for movement of vehicles to transport people, products and services throughout the county.
Secondly, under the direction of the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, we provide cost-effective, high quality professional maintenance and construction services for 209 miles of state highways within Fond du Lac County. These services are essential to continue the operations of the State Highway System for commerce and travel throughout the state.
Furthermore, the Department plans, programs and implements necessary improvements to safely and efficiently accommodate for present and future traffic demands enhancing economic development and new job growth within the County. The department is directed by the Highway Commissioner and consists of 65 employees, including highway operations, fleet and equipment maintenance, engineering and surveying, as well accounting services and administrative staff.
