Cass County has approximately 508 square miles with a population of over 52,00 people. The county is approximately 24 miles wide by 22 miles deep making it the 2nd smallest county in Michigan. Major trunk lines, maintained by MDOT, includes US-12, M-60, M-62, M-51, M-40, M-152, M-216 and M-205.
Cass County contains 15 Townships, 4 Villages and 1 City with Cassopolis headquarters situated in the middle of the county. The Cass County Road Commission has the responsiblity for the constuction and maintenance of all 1014 miles of public roads and bridges located within the road system. Many public roads are paved but some are gravel.
At the direction of the townships, the Road Commission also constructs and improves county local roads. It is only one of three counties in Michigan to own and operate its own asphalt plant and have an open air mining operation producing its own sand and gravel.
The work of the Cass County Road Commission includes not only snow removal and road repair, but also the upgrading and building of new and existing roads to current standards.
