 Jackson County Highway Maintenance Facility


 Our County


​Jackson County was founded in 1816 and named for President Andrew Jackson. The county has a total area of 421.53 square miles, and the principal communities include Coalton, Jackson, Oak Hill and Wellston.

The county offers outdoor recreation at many parks and lakes, and it is home to the Markay Cultural Arts Center. It also hosts several festivals and fairs each year, including the Apple Festival in Jackson and the Foothills Art Festival at Canter's Cave Lodge. 


 Our Work

​In each county, the highway maintenance workforce is comprised of highway technicians (HTs), auto technicians and office personnel. The HTs are the most visible of all ODOT employees, as they are the ones who are seen clearing the state highway system of snow and ice during the winter-weather months. In addition to this and responding to emergencies as needed, county maintenance crews perform other operations throughout the year, including:
  • Guardrail installation and repair
  • Pavement repair and resurfacing
  • Culvert replacement and drainage cleaning
  • Vegetation control, mowing and brush cutting
  • Litter control
  • Sign installation and pavement marking repair
The Jackson County maintenance facility is located at Rice Road and S.R. 32, just east of the city of Jackson. The state highway system is comprised of 10 state routes and one federal route; they include S.R. 32, S.R. 93, S.R. 124, S.R. 139, S.R. 140, S.R. 233, S.R. 279, S.R. 327, S.R. 776, S.R. 788 and U.S. 35.
