Do all counties have road commissions?
Every county in Michigan has a county road agency. All but five have
county road commissions. In Calhoun, Ingham, Jackson, Macomb and Wayne Counties, the road commission was merged
with county general government. In every other county, the
road commission is a separate unit of government.

What do county road commissions do?
The activities of road commissions vary from county to county. In rural
counties, for example, road commissions spend a great deal of time
maintaining gravel roads. Commissions in the urban, more populace
counties of southern lower Michigan split their time between maintaining
gravel and paved roads. For most, however, winter maintenance (plowing
and salting) is a top priority.
County road commission duties include, but are not limited to:
Road and bridge construction, repair and maintenance.
Snow removal, salting, and sanding.
Surface treatments and chip and crack sealing.
Street lane painting and marking and maintaining road signage.
Ensuring steady and safe traffic patterns.
Controlling roadside vegetation, mowing and brush cutting.
Gravel road grading.
Roadside ditch and drain maintenance.
A typical county road commission's equipment includes:
Excavating machinery, paving tools, and backhoes.
Tractors, mowers, and street sweepers.
A fleet of motor graders and single- and tandem-axle trucks for
plowing, salting, sanding, and grading.
