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.
It's been two years since Cornell R. Robertson, P.E., P.S. took over the reigns as the Franklin County Engineer. Thank you for your hard work, dedication and leadership. Happy Anniversary, Engineer Robertson!
Today marks the 242nd anniversary that the Stars and Stripes were adopted as our national flag. Red symbolizes Hardiness and Valor. White symbolizes Purity and Innocence. Blue represents Vigilance, Perseverance and Justice. Happy #FlagDay!
Yesterday, we held our 2nd FCEO Engineer Shadowing Day of the year. Engineer Robertson kicked off the day with a welcome, and the students visited various departments in our office and even headed out to a project site. Our next shadow experience will be Sept. 11th.
