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.

Mobility Department

Mobility Department

Mobility Engineer

The Mobility Engineering Department works to maintain the capacity and safety of county roads. Duties include the design, installation and operation of all forms of traffic control devices, such as pavement striping, traffic signals, road signage and school zone flashers; review of construction plans to ensure proper traffic control, maintenance of traffic, and detour routing; and preparation of traffic studies to determine speed limit reductions and increases, four way stops, and traffic signal locations. They also evaluate new zoning and subdivisions that access county roads to determine if there will be impairments to roadway safety and efficiency.

Access Management Regulations

 

Access management involves providing/managing access to land development while simultaneously preserving the flow of traffic on the surrounding road system in terms of safety, capacity and speed. It protects the major investment of the county roads and is essential to operating them safely and efficiently.

Access management views the highway and the surrounding land as parts of a system; all parts are important and interact with each other. The goal is to coordinate the planning and design of each to preserve the capacity of the overall system, and to allow efficient and safe access to and from the properties.

Most of the cities in Franklin County have had access management standards in various forms for a long time (including Columbus, Hilliard, and Dublin) and the State of Ohio has adopted access management guidelines. A few years ago, the state legislature passed House Bill 366 with created the enabling legislation for counties and townships to adopt access management regulations. Since then many counties have done so.

The proposed County Commissioner’s Resolution starts the process per the ORC for adoption of these regulations on county roadways on the county thoroughfare plan.
