The Highway Maintenance Department provides for the safe and efficient operation of 271 miles of county roadway. It is the largest department within the Franklin County Engineer's Office, and works from two regional facilities and the 970 Dublin Road Headquarters. Their duties include pavement and berm repair, drain tile installation, roadside mowing, landscaping, and litter control. During the winter months, "Snow Fighter" crews work around the clock to clear nearly 800 lane miles of roads and streets, and supply road salt to 23 communities and public agencies. They also install snow fence and administer the corn stalk program to prevent snow drifts.
