The Burton Township Roads Department maintains 35 streets (19.5 miles) within the township. Township roads consist of 15 miles of asphalt, almost four miles of gravel, and a little less than a mile of chip and seal.

The Burton Township Roads Department has two employees which includes the Road Foreman.  They are responsible for asphalt patching, crack sealing, roadside ditch cleaning, gravel road grading, dust control application, installation and maintenance of all signage, roadside mowing, snowplowing, roadside shoulder repair, tree and brush trimming, road culvert maintenance and replacement, and guardrail repair and replacement.


The following equipment is used to complete these responsibilities.

  • 1989, 1996, and 2013 Dump Trucks
  • 2007 Pick Up Truck
  • 2 Backhoes
  • Roadside Mower
  • Road Grater
  • Asphalt Roller
  • Agricultural Tractor
  • Lawn Mower
  • Asphalt Hot Box Trainer
  • Road Maintenance Trailer – shared with Fairgrounds.

In addition, due to the age of the equipment, the Burton Township employees usually spend a day working on equipment for every two days of use.
The department is also responsible for the maintenance of the township owned Administration Building and grounds and some maintenance of Burton Township cemeteries.
