LaMoure County Highway Department maintains the County Roads.  This system is made up of 156 miles of Asphalt Roads and 100 miles of Gravel Roads.  It is the Highway department's job to maintain a safe driving surface, sign the roads appropriately, and in the winter time snow removal.

The County also helps maintain township roads by blading and doing snow removal on a contracted basis. The repairs done to the Township roads have set the Department up as a vendor for Steel Culverts, Plastic Culverts, and Gravel for the repair of roads.
