County Forest Road Aids
County Forest Road Aids help defray county costs for the improvement and maintenance of public roads within county forests.
County Forest Road Aid of $351 per mile of qualifying road is paid each year on March 10. The aid is prorated if the amount appropriated in the state budget is not sufficient to support the $351 per mile payment.
To qualify, roads must meet minimum design standards of a 16-foot surface width and a 20-foot roadway width, be located within county forests, must be open and used for travel, and cannot be town roads or county or state trunk highways.
