Highway Department

The Highway Department is responsible for maintaining approximately 640 miles of asphalt, chip and seal and gravel roads.  The Highway Department receives its funding from a portion of the gasoline tax collected at the pump throughout the State of Indiana. We also receive Wheel Tax revenue collected at the Bureau of Motor Vehicles when license plates are purchased.  The County Highway does not receive funding from property taxes.  
During all seasons, the Highway Department has many duties pertaining to the care and preservation of the roadways and rights-of-way as well as sign maintenance.   Throughout the year, our team works hard to ensure that Whitley County roads are safe and well maintained for residents and guests of Whitley County.
For questions or concerns please contact the Whitley County Highway Department at 260-248-3123 or [email protected]
