Department Goals
The Highway Department's goals are to increase the overall quality of County highways and reduce overall road maintenance costs by researching and implementing new technology in equipment and road maintenance methods. Under Wisconsin State Statutes Chapter 83, the County is responsible for the maintenance of about 335 miles of County roadway and 412 lane-miles of State roadway.

The Douglas County Highway Department strives to provide quality services to the taxpayers of Douglas County, while at the same time providing quality contracted services with other governmental entities to reduce dependence on County tax levy dollars.

Department Facilities
The Highway Department's main facility is located in Hawthorne, Wisconsin. The facility is centrally located within the County to provide faster response time and more efficient operation. The facility includes warm vehicle storage, a maintenance area, administrative offices, cold vehicle storage, high-arch gambrel sodium chloride storage, lean-to storage, and a vehicle wash bay. The building also houses the Sheriff's Department sub-substation.

In addition to the Hawthorne facility, there are four garage / tool house sites located throughout the County:  Dairyland on State Trunk Highway 35, Gordon on County Trunk Highway (CTH) M, Maple on CTH FF, and Pattison Park on Manitou Valley Road.
