The method used to examine the density of the road network was by overlaying maps of the road network in 2000 and 2013. The results of map overlay were calculated using a simple statistical tools in Ms. Excel 2010 and the results were calculated using the formula of road network density and was analyzed descriptively. The results of overlay map of the road network density in 2000 and 2013 indicated the existence of the highest density of the road network in Kotamobagu city spatially after the proliferation of region. The highest density of the road network was in the city center and several surrounding villages.
