The Brown County Highway Department is principally responsible for the engineering, planning, and coordination of the construction and maintenance of a safe and efficient county-wide transportation system. In fulfilling these objectives, the department must promote and maintain a high degree of understanding and cooperation with the County Board of Commissioners, local units of government, the Minnesota Department of Transportation, the Federal Highway Administration, as well as other State and Federal agencies. This department's responsibilities extend over the highways and bridges on our local County road system and our County State Aid Highway system, and scheduling replacements of bridge structures under the jurisdiction of the local Townships.

The County Highway Department handles scheduling of repairs and inspection of County Drainage Ditches.  To contact the Highway Department regarding drainage ditches, call (507) 233-5700
