Keeping up with hundreds of miles of roadways isn't any an easy job, and it's certainly not free. We take your tax dollars seriously, and we think it shows.
At the Wayne County Engineer's Office, we work year round to ensure the maintenance, repair, construction, and care of the roadways within beautiful Wayne County Ohio.
We work hard to ensure that every taxpayer dollar of funding is utilized in the best possible way in order to create safer roadways within our county.

The Engineer is also responsible for many bridges within municipalities, including some on the state highway system. The Engineer must maintain a perpetual inventory of all bridges on the county and township highway system, including an annual inspection and evaluation of the condition and load carrying capacity of each bridge.
