INDOT Map Showing County Maintained Roads

The Indiana Department of Transportation also has a map that shows city and county maintained roads.  The INDOT map can be viewed at the following link:

INDOT Road Inventory Map

The map will open by showing the Indianapolis area.  In order to move the map to the Evansville – Vanderburgh County area, click and hold your left mouse button, and drag the map to the Evansville area.  The mouse wheel will zoom in or out on the map.  Once the map has been moved to the Evansville -  Vanderburgh County area, follow these steps in order to highlight city streets and county streets:

  • In the “Layer List,” turn off the following layers by clicking the check mark in the box:  INDOT_LTAP - Functional Class, INDOT_LTAP – Reference Post, and INDOT_LTAP – Corporation.  The “Layer List” is the third box from the top in the upper right hand corner of the screen.
  • In the “Layer List,” turn on the following layer by clicking in the box (check mark should be visible after clicking): CountyLog sm scale.  Once that layer is turned on, city streets will be shown with blue lines, and county roads are shown with gold lines. 

If a street is not shown with either a blue line or a gold line, that means the street is not maintained by either the city or the county.  Vanderburgh County assumes no responsibility for the accuracy of the data shown in the INDOT map.  So if there are any questions regarding the maintenance status any of the county roads, please call the County Engineering Department at 812-435-5773.  The staff of the engineering department should be able to confirm whether a road is or is not maintained by Vanderburgh County.

County Road Hearing

Each year, the Vanderburgh County Commissioners hold a road hearing in order to solicit input from county residents in regard to needed road repairs and paving requests.  These hearings include a presentation that includes a list of potential road repair projects as determined by the staff of the County Highway Department and the County Engineering Department.  The current presentation can be viewed at the following link:

2019 Road Hearing Presentation

The presentation also includes a link to a GIS website that shows a wide variety of data regarding county roads.  This data includes road repair projects completed in previous years, repair requests received during the current year, and pavement condition index ratings provided by the county's road asset management plan.  The GIS website can be viewed by at the following link:

The information received at the road hearing, combined with staff recommendations,  a review of the pavement condition ratings, and the available funding are then used to determine the county's road repair plan for the year.
