The Audubon County Engineer is responsible for the construction and maintenance of the Secondary Road System of Audubon County, Iowa. This road system is made up of approximately 760 miles of roads and 215 bridges. The roads range from Level C dirt roads to asphalt or concrete paved roads. The bridges span the classifications of structurally deficient, functionally obsolete all-wooden structures, to new concrete and steel.
In order to maintain the roadways, Audubon County is divided into 9 motor grader (patrol/blade/maintainer) districts. Each motor grader has approximately 160 lane miles of road to work, keeping in the best driving condition possible for both summer and winter. Maintenance on our roadways is governed by ordinances according to the class of roadway and the situation: Level A & B, Level C, winter road maintenance, and use of road right-of-way. A couple of our more commonly questioned policies include “field entrances” and “tile crossings”.
