Marilyn EdwardsWelcome to the Washington County Road Department web site.

As your elected County Judge, one of the most important responsibilities legislated to this office is the construction and maintenance of county roads and bridges. In that effort, it is our goal to provide the safest and most efficient road system possible. Currently the Washington County Road Department maintains 408 miles of paved roads and 524 miles of gravel roads, and is ranked as one of the largest county road systems in the State of Arkansas.

We believe Washington County’s Road Department is also among the best in the State of Arkansas. The department is headquartered in a facility which has been developed and constructed to meet the specific needs of our growing county road system.

Currently the Washington County Road Department is comprised of 80 county employees, and is supervised by Donnie Coleman and Shawn Shrum who have a combined roadwork experience of more than 15 years.

Washington County currently owns and operates a county limestone pit and gravel crusher on the western side of the county, and plans are under way to lease property on the east side of Washington County for another limestone pit to produce gravel for our roads.

My goal for the Washington County Road Department is to provide the best and fastest service possible to all the citizens of the county within budget restraints.

Please know that you are welcome to contact me at any time, should the need arise regarding service from our fine road department.
