How do I get my road improved?

Call, Write, or visit our Office and ask about our Local Improvement District (LID) program. The LID program is designed to allow people to have their road improved to County standards and then accepted into the County system for continual maintenance. Click here to download the Citizen's Guide .

Can I get the County to put Dust Palliative on my road or driveway?

Generally no. The County has performed dust control on certain county roads over the years. At one time the dust palliative was available to us free. We have since had to pay for the material and the cost has steadily risen. We are gradually phasing out the program and new roads are not added

How do I get my driveway , private road, or local access road graded by the County?

Linn County Road Department provides gravel road and driveway grading services to Private Citizens and Cities on an individual request basis. You can download a grading request form and send it to our office. Grading is performed when we are in the area.

Why are you paving that road? Don 't you know that (insert road name) is in a lot worse condition?

Road paving decisions are made based on many different factors. The primary factor is the condition of the road segment. Some road segments are in “poor” condition and shouldn't be overlaid. These poor road segments must be reconstructed. Paving a road that may look pretty good extends the life of the road segment at a much lower cost than reconstruction.

How come the Road Department won't fix my road?

The Linn County Road Department is responsible for the maintenance of over 1,100 miles of road and over 300 bridges. We only maintain roads that are accepted into the County Road System. “County Roads” are roads that have been accepted by the Board of Commissioners for county maintenance. If we are not maintaining your road then it may be a local access road, private road, city street, or state highway.

Back

What is a “local access” road?

“Local access road” means a public road that is not a county road, state highway or federal road. Local access roads are roads that have been dedicated to the public but not accepted by the County for maintenance. Local access roads can become County roads through the LID process.

Back

How do I establish a "no-spray" zone?

“No-spray” zones may be established by property owners or tenants who prefer to maintain the vegetation along their road frontage rather than rely on mowing and spraying by the Road Department. No-spray zone request forms may be picked up at our office and are available on-line.

How do I name / re-name my road?

Linn County Code 960 regulates the naming and renaming of roads in Linn County. Click here to go to the County Counsel web site where you can access Linn County Codes on-line.

Do you have an Adopt A Highway program?

We do not currently have an adopt a highway program. We are considering implementing a program if we get enough interest from the general public.
