Snow & Ice Control:
The Scioto County Engineer & Staff monitor the changing weather conditions closely to determine the best approach to control the changing pavement conditions. Treatment is applied based upon the pavement and temperature conditions to maximize our efficiency of operations.
Tree & Brush Removal:
Scioto County Engineer crews remove trees and brush along the roadways throughout the winter months as schedule permits. The removal of dead and overhanging trees removes hazards and opens the roadway to permit sunlight in which assist with snow and ice control while keeping moisture from deteriorating the pavement. Brush mowing removes grown up brush and weeds near the edge of the right-of-way to provide greater sight distance.
Pre-cast Box Bridge Fabrication:
County Engineer employees are fabricating structures for installation during the summer months. The crew cut and bends reinforcing steel for fabrication of steel mats for insertion in county fabricated formwork. The crew then places concrete to complete the fabrication process.
Crews clear the ditch lines within the right-of-way of sediment and debris restricting flow. Adjoining inlets and outlets of pipes are cleaned as necessary to maintain a consistent ditch flow.
We are located at 602 SEVENTH STREET RM.401, PORTSMOUTH, Ohio. This is on the first floor of the Courthouse. Our Garage is located at 56 STATE ROUTE 728, LUCASVILLE, OHIO, it is just off US route 23 in Lucasville.

Mackletree Bridge Replacement:
