Mobility Department

Mobility Department

Mike Andrako, P.E.

Mobility Engineer

The Mobility 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 changes, 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.

Mission Statement of the Mobility Department:

The Mobility Department is committed to providing safe and accommodating mobility options for the residents of Franklin County utilizing all modes of transportation. We assure that roadway signage, traffic signals, and pavement markings, are kept in excellent condition. We strive to preserve system capacity by adapting to changes in traffic patterns and partnering with area developments on infrastructure improvements. We take a Vision Zero approach to crashes, applying site specific and systemic enhancements to County facilities and ensure the protection of vulnerable road users by utilizing complete streets principles.

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.
