Roadways in Jackson Township
Roadways in Jackson Township are maintained by three different jurisdictions. The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT), The Stark County Engineer, and the Jackson Township Highway Department each has responsibility for their own jurisdiction of roadways. This means that all maintenance, repair, snow and ice removal and signage on state jurisdiction roads are done by ODOT. This same work is done by the Stark County Engineer on Stark County jurisdiction roadways. Lastly, the Jackson Township Highway Department is responsible for the 203 miles of Township jurisdiction roadways, the majority of which are the allotments. Each agency receives tax money dedicated only to their own jurisdiction roadways.

All other public roadways in Jackson Township are the responsibility of the Jackson Township Highway Department at 330-832-4016. A roadway is public after it has been turned over to the Township from the Stark County Commissioners after being accepted as completed construction. Private roadways are privately maintained.
Traffic problems and correction of traffic problems fall back to these same jurisdictions. The majority of traffic problems are encountered at the busy Stark County and State of Ohio roadway intersections in Jackson Township. Your Jackson Township Trustees have no jurisdiction over correction of County and State traffic problems. The Trustees have been working very hard in cooperation with the County and State to bring the recognition, priority, and improvement of these traffic problems to completion.
For additional information regarding roads, residents are invited to contact the Jackson Township Highway Department at 330-832-4016.
