About Ross Roads
The Ross Township Road Department is responsible for maintaining over 46 miles of Township roadways and residential streets in Ross Township. In addition to the Township maintained roadways, Ross Township has one U.S. Highway (US27), four State Routes (SR126, SR128, SR129 and SR748) and six Butler County Routes (30, 31, 40, 42, 172 and 178). The Ross Township Road Department works together with the Ohio Department of Transportation and the Butler County Engineer’s offices to provide quality maintenance and to insure the safety of all roadways throughout the township.
The duties of the department include general, rehabilitative and reconstructive road maintenance; the repair and replacement of culverts, ditches, road signage and guardrail; performing roadside mowing and interchange maintenance (US27 & SR128); upkeep of Venice Gardens Park and three cemeteries; and providing snow and ice control and maintenance of all township owned facilities.
The department staffs three full time employees and is equipped with a medium and heavy duty truck fleet, front loader/backhoes, multifunctional skid steer loader, asphalt blacktopping and sealing machinery and two tractors for roadside mowing.
In addition, there are auxiliary drivers during the winter months to assist with snow removal when necessary. We utilize two heavy duty dump trucks with salt spreaders and plows. Each dump truck is set up with liquid deicing dispensing units for extreme cold weather salting operations. Also incorporated into the winter salting operation is a one ton dump truck with a tailgate salt spreader and plow and a pickup truck with a V-box spreader and plow.
It is the commitment of every Ross Township Road Department employee, to preform to the best of their ability, to provide the safest vehicular and pedestrian travel possible for citizens utilizing Ross Township’s designated right-of-way. The Ross Township Road Department employees act respectfully and respond to the needs, concerns and complaints of the public when it is within the scope of the Road Department’s duties.
In 2003, President George W. Bush issued Homeland Security Presidential Directive 5, Management of Domestic Incidents, in which a public works response to emergencies and disasters is recognized as an absolute necessity, and the federal government is directed to include public works in all planning and response effort. On July 7, 2022, the Ross Township Board of Trustees passed a resolution supporting recognition of employees of the Ross Township Road Department as First Responders and encourages businesses, organizations, community groups and citizens to extend the benefits provided to the First Responders of our community.
