CDL Drivers Needed!!

The Mercer County Highway Department is being impacted by the shortage of CDL drivers. This shortage will directly impact our snow removal operations this winter season. Occasionally, roads will not be cleared of snow and ice as quickly as they have been in the past and drivers should anticipate longer than expected delays getting to and from their designations. We ask for your patience while we attempt to clear the roads with a reduced number of drivers.

If you have a CDL and are interested in working part time this winter season please contact the Mercer County Highway Department at (309) 582-2715.
