The Harvey County Road and Bridge Department fulfills its namesake - the department oversees 486 lane miles of road in the county, as well as 281 bridges - yet the department's tasks and responsibilities extend much further than that.

Road and Bridge also handles snow and ice control on many roads, examines utility permits, clears drift and repairs erosion near bridges, maintains county road and regulatory signs, replaces and installs culverts, mows rights of way, trims trees, grades ditches and creates drainage improvements.

The department's mission is to sensibly evaluate and meet infrastructure needs in Harvey County through integrity, efficiency and fiscal responsibility while ensuring the welfare and safety of residents.
