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.
The current Miller County Courthouse was constructed in 1939 and is located in downtown Texarkana. It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1998. This stately white concrete edifice has seen all manner of government business and trials large and small.
