Road maintenance decisions are made based on many different factors. The primary factor is the condition of the the entire road segment. Some road segments are in “poor” condition and shouldn’t be overlaid. The timing of your road to be reconstructed, overlaid or repaired must also be prioritized with the other 2000+ miles of County roads along with avalability of materials and resources.

You can contact the Road Department by calling (479) 271-1052 or by email.

A petition must be submitted to Benton County to create a new road, change a road name, and/or submit for a road reclassification. Sample petitions, directions, and requirements can be found on the 911 Administration page. Please review all requirements and directions before completing your petition. You may use the sample petitions or create your own, but they must meet the requirements outlined, mostly notably, that ALL property owners must sign, and the petition must be notarized.
