ROADS THAT QUALIFY FOR TOWNSHIP MILEAGE PAYMENTS
84-03-01-01 Township Road Defined
A township road, for purposes of the administration of North Dakota Century Code section 57-50-01, is a public road established pursuant to North Dakota Century Code chapter 24-07 which is an improved road, constructed, maintained, graded, and drained by the township, or county in the case of an unorganized township. A township road includes a street in an unincorporated townsite and does not necessarily have to be surfaced. A sodded road is not a township road. In order for a section line to be a township road it must be graded and drained and be an improved maintained road. A township road is a public road which is not designated as part of a county, state, or federal-aid road system and is not located in an incorporated city.
