Milton Township Road District


Spring 2021 Here at Milton Township Highway Department, we’ve always prided ourselves to treat our residents like friends. Our doors have always been open, but due to current circumstances we are requesting that homeowner’s and contractors coming to the Milton Township Highway Dept. office for permits and/or concerns that they make an appointment first.   We will be answering phones and emails, so please keep in touch with any questions you may have or schedule an appointment. We can be reached at (630) 682-4270 or mthd@miltonhighway.com.Gary Muehlfelt, Highway Commissioner Recently Completed Projects:  Morse Avenue Sidewalk 

What were, until now, hazardous open culverts which forced students to walk along a busy Township Road, will soon be a pedestrian friendly, safe and level sidewalk where they can find their way home without hazard. Please check back to our Highway page often to see the progress. Commissioner Muehlfelt and the Milton Township Board are pleased to work together to make our Township Streets safer for all our citizens, especially our younger ones.
