The St. Charles County Highway Department maintains and improves existing public county roads, constructs new roads, and provides snow removal and oversight of the public right-of-way.

The department is comprised of approximately 118 employees, including laborers, equipment operators, technicians, engineers and administrative staff.

County Streets/Roads

County roads are any public road located outside the jurisdiction of the various cities in the County and that are not part of the state system.

State Maintained Highways

The state highway system includes any numbered (I-70, Route 94, etc.) or lettered route (Highway K, Highway DD, etc.). The state is also responsible for the traffic signals along these highways and overpasses. You may contact them at 314-275-1500 or 888-ASK-MODOT.

Municipality Maintained Roads

Streets within cities are typically maintained by the city, with the exception of smaller municipalities such as Cottleville, Weldon Spring, St. Paul, etc., who contract with the County Highway Department to have their streets maintained.
