The Allen County Engineer and the 12 Townships collectively maintain 352 and 550 miles of roads, respectively. Unfortunately, most of the roads are in disrepair and there isn’t enough money to fix them. Therefore, every Spring the County Engineer and the Township Trustees evaluate the conditions of every road in the County. Once the condition ratings are established, these agencies meet to prioritize which roads need to be fixed with the limited resources available.
A meeting of all township trustees, the Allen County Engineer and Allen County Commissioners was held on Tuesday, April 17th at 11 A.M. at the Allen County Engineer’s Office, 1501 N. Sugar Street, Lima, Ohio. The meeting was to discuss and finalize the 2018 Road Programs for township, village and county road work in Allen County. At the meeting, County Engineer Brion Rhodes reviewed the totals for road work for the county, twelve townships and six villages.
