Road Projects

2017 Road Program

Allen County’s annual road program includes paving, tar & chip work and crack patching on various county roads.  The funding for this work mainly comes from the Motor Vehicle License Plate Fees and Gasoline Tax, but can occasionally come from a State or Federal Grant.  Particular projects are determined in April and approved by the Board of County Commissioners.  Work usually begins in May or June and is completed by October.  Allen County forces do all of the tar & chip work and most of the minor paving work.  The larger paving projects are bid-out and performed by a private contractor.

Future Road Projects


Kill Road Reconstruction
– This office has secured state and local funding to widen and reconstruct approximately 2,150′ of Kill Road between the Norfolk and Western Railroad and State Road in the NW corner of Allen County.  The purpose is to improve safety by widening the existing 17’ wide road to 24’ wide to accommodate semi-truck traffic from the feed processing facility on that section of Kill Road.  This company’s proposed expansion is adding several semi-trucks per day to the roadway, which only has an ADT of 300 vpd.  The low volume road is not designed to handle truck traffic and the 17’ width is not wide enough to allow trucks to pass safely.  This project would greatly improve access to the business and support the continued growth.

Elida Road Joint Repair – In 2018, we will be receiving Federal Funds to repair a 2 ¼ mile section of Elida Road just east of Delphos, from the corporation limits to Baugh Road.  Approximately 140 concrete joints will be cut out and repaired with compacted stone and asphalt base mix.  Then the entire 2.5 miles will be leveled and paved with a new top course to greatly improve the driving surface in that section.

Guardrail Replacement – In 2018, we will also be receiving a $300,000 Federal Safety Grant to replace several sections of deteriorating guardrail along several county roads.  This is a 100% Federal Grant, meaning there will be no matching local funds used for the construction of this project.
