Act 51 of 1951 established the funding of the State Road systems and also qualified Primary and Local County Roads.We have approximately 180 miles of Primary Roads, the most heavily travel roads, in Crawford County. Local roads basically serve the landowners in a township. They are often gravel roads and sometimes barely navigable trail roads. Most Primary and Local roads are maintained year round by the Road Commission. We also have seasonal roads that are not maintained in the winter but are open for snowmobilers and skiers. These roads either do not have any houses on them or are too narrow for our trucks to plow.
Many people are led to believe the County provides maintenance for their road and after the first snowfall find out that it was not a County Road or was too narrow to be plowed (follow the seasonal road link above). If you are contemplating buying a home or building on a County Road, please refer to our list of County Maintained Roads.
