Your Safety is Our Job
The Wright County Highway Department is one of the more visible departments in the county. Most of us have seen the orange trucks plowing snow in the winter and have noticed various construction-related activities in the summer on our highway system.

 The department is responsible for all activities involving Wright County's 512 mile County Highway system. This system is split into 406 miles of County State Aid Highways (which are financed mostly by state-aid gas tax funds and federal funds) and 106 miles of County Roads (which are financed only by local property tax). About 50 bridges under county jurisdiction are also included on these routes. Personnel in the organization (totaling over 50 full-time) are divided into 4 main divisions: 

  • Engineering Division
  • Maintenance Division
  • Fleet Services / Shop / Equipment
  • Highway Accounting
