The Township Highway Department has jurisdiction over the unincorporated roads in the Township.  We routinely perform the following:

  • Cut grass and trim trees along Township roads.
  • Plow and salt roadways as required.
  • Re-ditch drainage trenches and install culverts along roads.
  • Pothole maintenance, road resurfacing and signage.
  • Assist with building and grounds maintenance at the Oak Forest, Senior/Youth centers and the Markham Administrative Center.
  • Maintain and repair vehicles, trucks, heavy equipment and tools.
  • Issue driveway/culvert permits.
  • Assist residents as required.

Bremen Township works in conjunction with the Cook County Department of Transportation, County Commissioners and the Water Reclamation Department for a solution to rain water management in the unincorporated areas.
