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.

One year ago today, Cornell R. Robertson, P.E., P.S. became the 8th Franklin County Engineer. It's been a busy year! We became more engaged in the community, more responsive to citizen requests and needs, more innovative in our project design and construction and even more fiscally responsible. He encouraged us to maintain a tradition of excellence while challenging us to think outside the box. Cornell, we are proud to have you as our County Engineer!!! Happy Anniversary!

Today marks the 240th anniversary that we adopted the Stars and Stripes as our national flag. It is also the one year anniversary that former County Engineer Dean Ringle retired and turned over the reins to current County Engineer Cornell Robertson. We celebrate and honor both historical moments in our county and Nation’s history. #FlagDay

Nearly 26 years ago, Cornell Robertson joined FCEO. Over the years he worked on several of multi million dollar projects and was widely known for his passion for roundabouts. So, we asked his family for their favorite project they responded with: the roundabout he mowed in the backyard for their Power Wheels, the tree house and ice rink he designed and built. By day, he's responsible for building and maintaining roads and bridges. By night, he made the backyard magical for his kids. #CornellTheEngineer

While you were sleeping, Shelly & Sands had crews working on our Livingston Ave. bridge project. You may wonder why they work at night. It's because the weather conditions allow the concrete more time to cure properly and traffic is calmer. In about 3 weeks they'll shift traffic to this side and work on the other side of the bridge. Check back for pics.

The Franklin County Road Map can be obtained, free of charge, through the Engineer’s Offices and at various county, municipal, township, and state facilities. Our Surveying Department has gathered information from numerous public entities such as the Franklin County Auditor’s Office, Metro Parks, Ohio Department of Transportation, and City of Columbus to create the most accurate and comprehensive road map. About 1,250 changes were made to our land and highway record data base since the publication of the 2009 edition.

The five-color 44-inch wide and 37-inch tall road map shows over 12,000 public roads, which are listed in the street locator index, and the locations of 1,000 points of interest such as airports, fire departments, government buildings, high schools, hospitals, police departments, post offices, shopping centers, and universities. Also shown are regional street address numbers that are useful in locating specific addresses.

For more information about the road map, or to suggest revisions, please contact Ben McCown, GIS Manager. To obtain a State of Ohio Map, please go to the Ohio Department of Transportation Maps Resource Page.
