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.
We are pleased to announce the creation of the Collaborative Right-of-Way Restoration Program (CRR Alley Program). The program seeks to collaborate with local municipalities to improve alleys located near project areas and provide better overall access to the alley systems. We are looking forward to continuing the program during next year’s construction cycle.
It’s Roundabout Week! This week we will share the benefits of roundabouts and highlight some of our favorite Franklin County roundabouts. Take a look at the video link to learn the rules of driving roundabouts. Remember to slow down, take a look around, and be ready to yield!
