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.
As we conclude #Eweek2021, Engineer Robertson shares a story about how he helped inspire a young engineer who now is a member of #TeamFCEO. We hope you continue to celebrate engineering beyond this week and inspire someone to imagine a better tomorrow!
Today we recognize Howard P. Grant. He was a civil engineer, community leader, and a "man of many firsts." Grant was a well-respected engineer, and his legacy lives on through the programs and organizations he created to inspire African American youth in engineering. #BHM
