Franklin County Engineer is with Asbury United Methodist Church South and Madison Township.
The Franklin County Drainage Engineer partnered with Columbus and Franklin County Metro Parks to clear a large log jam along Blacklick Creek which contributed to upstream flooding in the area. It was a long, hot day, but the joint effort successfully cleared the channel, and water was able to flow freely.

Land Acquisition Policy

The County Engineer’s Office is responsible for the maintenance and construction needs of 260 miles of county roadway and 359 bridges. In performing these duties it is often necessary to purchase additional right-of-way for the building of wider pavement widths that meet increasing traffic and safety demands, and to replace deficient bridges.

If you own property or occupy a dwelling near a proposed road or bridge improvement, you should familiarize yourself with the working procedures of the County Engineer’s Office, and how you may be affected by the construction work.

This policy statement explains what your rights are as a property owner, and provides answers to some of the questions you may have about the land acquisition process.
