The Allen County Engineer's Office received a grant from the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency to use recycled tires in asphalt for a 4 mile paving job in northern Allen County.
Hearing a forecast of several inches of snow can be daunting, especially when thinking of commuting to work after a large snowstorm. But for the Ohio Department of Transportation - Northwest Ohio District 1 and the Allen County Engineer's Office, it's just another workday in the winter.
Is there any plan to fix Wapak Rd btwn SR 309 & Billymack rd? That chunk of road has been closed for more than a year. Every time I've reached out to the engineers office or to the township, I get a runaround and the blame game is played as far as who has to pay for it. We - the taxpayers - want our road back 😡

The Allen County Engineer's Office is getting ready to brace for the economic impact of the COVID-19 orders.
Snow has hit the area and we're expected to get even more Wednesday evening. The Allen County Engineer's Office has been working throughout the day to get the roads ready.
Is there any fix in sight for the section of Wapak rd (near 309) that is closed?
I am curious as to when the current Engineer's facility was built.
This is getting ridiculous!! A retention pond I pay for on taxes and I have to deal with this!!! Who wants to pay for my foundation to be repaired because of flood waters?! This is Shawnee schools parking lot also flooded! More pictures in comments!

Hello this is a huge log and debris dam in Sugar Creek west of Stewart Rd. between Loescher and Bluelick. Does your dept help with this kind of project or do I contact someone else to help with this?
