As a local public works agency headquartered in Columbus, Ohio, the Franklin County Engineer's Office is responsible for the maintenance and construction of 271 miles of county roadway and 351 county bridges, as well as upkeep of all county ditches, drains, retention basins, and other storm water facilities within the right-of-way of county roads in unincorporated areas. To meet the continuing development and infrastructure needs of Franklin County, the Engineer's Office utilizes the latest technologies for determining and maintaining roadway centerlines and boundaries; retracing and setting new monuments for original public land surveys; preparing geographic information system mapping for real estate tax assessments; and establishing precise countywide horizontal and vertical control to maintain uniformity in construction, surveying, and mapping.
In celebration of Women's History Month and National Surveyor's Week we highlight Alice Fletcher, who's regarded as the first woman surveyor in the U.S. We also take this time to recognize all of the women surveyors that have contributed to the profession. #WomensHistoryMonth#NSW
Today, we joined one of our survey crews as they performed a topographic survey. They are gathering elevation data that will be used as a basis for design of the proposed drainage improvement. Thanks guys for letting us join you! #NationalSurveyorsWeek
