Welcome to the Koochiching County Highway Department.
Our goal is to provide a high level of cost effective service and maintenance to the Koochiching County roadways and bridges. Ensuring that all residents, visitors and businesses have access to a safe and functional transportation system.
County forces are currently placing a large effort on noxious weed control throughout all areas of the county highway system. These efforts include both mowing and spraying activities. Any herbicide used has been tested by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Minnesota Department of Agriculture. These herbicides specifically target brush and noxious weeds, leaving grass and other native species to flourish. If for any reason you prefer not to have your right-of-way sprayed, we will put forth our best effort to honor your request. At this time, you must post a "Do Not Spray" sign in the area you do not wish to be treated. In that instance it will be the property owners responsibility to control all brush and noxious weeds. In the event that the property owner does not control the vegetation properly, the area will resume to be included in our county management plan. 8/16/16
