10 Harveysburg Rd

Massie Township is located in Warren County, Ohio and is home to just over 1,000 residents.  We are proud to be host to the Ohio Renaissance Festival and Caesar Creek State Park. 

Road Department'

The Massie Township Road Department's main priority is to provide prompt and efficient services while maintaining public safety.

We are responsible for over 10.6 miles of roads in our township which we routinely inspect to ensure that they are in good condition. We oversee all road repair and road improvement projects. We also handle the roadside mowing, spraying of ditches, road sign replacement and plowing of snow in the winter.
 


Our Department

Todd Fairchild has been with the Road Department since 2003. A graduate of Clinton Massie High School, he has lived most of his life in Massie Township. Todd has one son, one daughter, and one grandchild.

Operations

We staff employees sufficient for handling snow and ice control for the township roads. The road crew consists of 2 part-time employees that work year-round.

In response to a limited salt supply, resulting from the current salt industry situation, Massie Township has made adjustments to salt usage during snow and ice cleanup for the upcoming winter season. Sodium Chloride (salt) will now be mixed with finely crushed granular material (grits) for use on the roads.

 

Priorities

When severe winter storm conditions warrant, the Warren County Engineer, the Warren County Sheriff, and the Director of Emergency Services will determine if levels of emergency are warranted that will restrict travel on township, county, and state highways. 

Snow Emergency Classifications: 
Level 1: Roadways are hazardous with blowing and drifting snow. Roads may also be icy. Drive carefully.
Level 2: Roadways are hazardous with blowing and drifting snow. Only those who feel it is necessary to drive should be out on the roads. Contact your employer to see if you should report to work.
Level 3: All roadways are closed to non-emergency personnel. No one else should be out during these conditions unless it is absolutely necessary to travel or a personal emergency exists. All employees should contact their employer to see if they should report to work. Those traveling on the roads may subject themselves to arrest.

When Bad Weather Happens

Snow Season Policy

The purpose of Massie Township’s snow season policy is to provide the safest possible roadway system and access routes for the motoring public, public schools, fire, police, emergency aid vehicles, the citizens of Massie Township, and the surrounding communities.

Understanding that the policy cannot eliminate all the impacts or effects of a snow and/or ice emergency, this policy is intended to communicate Massie Township's coordination efforts to reduce the threat to public safety from a snow and/or ice emergency. During inclement weather, Massie Township will make every effort to maintain the traffic flow in as close to normal driving conditions as possible.

Priorities

When severe winter storm conditions warrant, the Warren County Engineer, the Warren County Sheriff, and the Director of Emergency Services will determine if levels of emergency are warranted that will restrict travel on township, county, and state highways. 

Snow Emergency Classifications: 
Level 1: Roadways are hazardous with blowing and drifting snow. Roads may also be icy. Drive carefully.

All employees should contact their employer to see if they should report to work. Those traveling on the roads may subject themselves to arrest.

Safety

During the winter season, Massie Township’s first priority is to provide safety for all of the motorized public using the township road system. Here is what you can do to be prepared for a winter storm event. Practice caution for you and your family, and drive with care during the upcoming winter season.

During a Winter Storm Event

Do not allow children and pets to play on roadways or on the snow berms as this is very dangerous. Drivers may not see them or be able to stop in time to avoid hitting them.
As snow is plowed from roadways, windrows (a line or row of snow) can be created at the end of driveways and are the property owner’s responsibility to clear. Do not shovel or put snow from driveways onto or across township roads as this is unlawful and creates a hazard for other drivers. 
If you are removing snow from your property and a township snow plow approaches, there is a strong possibility that you are not visible to the operator. Dark clothing, the hour of day, and weather conditions inhibit visibility. 
Protect yourself from injury by giving the plow operator extra room to perform the task.

On the Road

Don't go out until the snow plows and salt mix trucks have had a chance to do their work, and allow yourself extra time to reach your destination. If you must drive in snowy conditions, make sure your car is prepared, and that you know how to handle road conditions. 
Snow plows make frequent stops and backup maneuvers; do not drive your car up behind a snow plow as the driver may be unable to see you and inadvertently back into your car. If you are behind a plow that stops, stop your vehicle in such a way that your car looks into the driver’s outside rearview mirror, and please give him extra room. 
Drivers are also urged to give an oncoming snow truck right-of-way. During the winter months, the berm or shoulder of the road is often too soft to support the weight of a loaded salt truck. These drivers cannot move off the road to let oncoming traffic pass on narrow roads. If you see a salt truck approaching on a narrow road, please be courteous and pull off into the nearest driveway and let the snow truck pass.
