The Roads Departments core purpose is to maintain all BIA roads on the Winnebago Reservation. We also maintain Highway 75/77 during the winter months. The departments exist to help keep the roads drivable. The needs we address are to keep all the roads safe and easier to drive on all year round. Our services include grading the BIA roads, filling potholes, keeping the ditches mowed and keeping rock on the roads. Also keeping our roads cleared, being on call 24/7 for snow removal and control. Our services help everyone in the community and travelers passing through.
During the snow season we are very busy. Our main priority is to keep all the main roads and bus routes open and safe to drive on. After our priority list is finished we will work towards clearing driveways that need it. Please keep in mind that we need all vehicles moved if you want your driveway cleared of snow. We cannot fit our heavy equipment in between cars.

  • Office Hours 8:00am–4:30pm
  • Operating Hours 7:00am-3:30pm

The Roads Department also provides rock for sell to those who need it to maintain their driveways. Rock is set at $32.00 a ton. If you are working for the Tribe we offer payroll deduction.
Note: Please have driveways cleared of any cars. We cannot spread the rock if cars are in the way. If you feel your driveway needs to be graded please let us know before we bring the rock. We will need a time and date to give you time to clear anything in the driveway.
Our location is 325 Charlie H Road. A block up from the Ho-Chunk Center on BIA 3
