The County Highway, Planning, and Vector Control offices are all located at the Cass County Highway Department Complex in West Fargo. The County Engineer is appointed by the County Board of Commissioners to serve as the department head for all of these operations.
The Cass County Highway Department is responsible for the efficient planning, design, construction, and maintenance of highways and bridges on the County highway system. Cass County is responsible for over 650 miles of County Highways, and about 300 bridges greater than 20 feet in length along with many smaller drainage structures.
Vision: To be recognized as a premier county highway program in the Northern Plain States.
Mission: To provide and maintain an efficient, safe, environmentally sensitive, and cost effective county transportation system to effectively meet citizen's needs for personal mobility and movement of goods consistent with the importance of transportation.
The County Highway Department annually schedules next year’s construction projects during the budget process. In an effort to increase efficiency and maintain a high level of transparency a Cass County Comprehensive Highway Plan has been developed.
This Plan acts as a document that more efficiently displays our data and serves as a 5 year Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) and is revisited annually. Included in the plan is a discussion of land use, highway safety, maintenance, and construction.
