In each of the sixteen townships the roads, bridges and culverts are maintained by different units of government including the following:
- Various State and Federal Agencies (I.D.O.T., I.D.N.R., Forest Service, etc.)
- Special Districts (Levee, etc.)
- Jackson County
- Township Road Districts
- Private Owners
The condition, surface material, width, etc. of roads are unrelated to which agency is responsible for its maintenance.
