The mission of the Polk County Highway Department is to provide citizens with outstanding service and efficiently maintain and restore the county infrastructure system.

We are commited to the safety and well-being of residents who travel our county highways and strive to assess weather conditions, clear roadways and take appropriate actions to keep the county highway system safe for travelers.

The Polk County Highway Superintendent manages the repair and maintenance of the county highway system of roads adopted by the local governing body.

Funding to the highway department comes from the Tennessee Gas Tax Fund allotted back to the county.

We are proud and honored to serve the people of Polk County
