The Ohio Revised Code has a classification system which divides all roads in the state, and establishes the entity responsible for maintaining them. Generally speaking, roads are maintained by municipalities, townships, counties, or the state. Further, the road department is charged with maintain, construct, improve, reconstruct, or resurface roadways.

​We are proud of our road department and take great pride in the township’s 47+ miles of roadways. With this being a primary duty of the township, we are diligent in our maintenance of the streets. If fact, this has become a calling card of the township, as we feel that our roadways and the road department’s maintenance is second to none in central Ohio. Please feel free to contact our road department with any questions or concerns you may have.
