The Highway Department, as with other county departments, acts under the authority of the Richland County Board of Commissioners. An appointed county engineer serves as department head, while the day-to-day projects are conducted under the supervision of the road superintendent and bridge foreman. Our main office is located in the courthouse in Wahpeton, ND, while we have departmental shops located across the county, which you can view here.
The primary function of the Richland County Highway Department is to provide a safe and reliable highway system for the traveling public by maintaining and constructing roadways and bridges within the county.
These roadways and bridges create a vital link from farms to market, homes to work, school and shopping, routes for mail and emergency services, and accesses to recreational opportunities.
The highway department is responsible for the planning, design, construction, and maintenance of highways on the county highway system and bridges on the county and township highway systems.
