It is our goal at the Miller County Road Department to provide the best service possible, dividing the responsibilities of existing road maintenance, new road construction, and bridge maintenance and repair, while keeping safety at the forefront of our operation. We strive to be at the cutting edge of road technology and improvement, while using proven methods to deliver the best roads in Miller County, which are divided into two categories.
County Maintained Roads:
A county maintained road is a road within Miller County that has been accepted into the County Maintenance System by the County Judge. To bring a Private Road into the County Maintenance System, the road must first meet Miller County Specifications set by Ordinance of the Quorum Court. Second, the road must be inspected by the Miller County Road Foreman for compliance to the road standards. After the road is inspected, it will set for one calendar year to test the roads integrity. The Road Foreman will come and inspect the road after the integrity check. When the road passes the final inspection, the County Judge, at his discretion, can court order the road into the County Maintenance System.
A private road is a road within Miller County that is not in the County Maintenance System. The maintenance on a private road is the responsibility of the citizens who own the property along the road.
Road Permits are required for commercial use for heavy vehicles such as log and oil field trucks. Road permits may be requested by calling the Miller County Judge’s office at 870-774-1301 or email [email protected]
