About CED

Circuit Engineering Districts (CEDs) have been developed under Title 69 § 687.1, which allows Counties to come together as a cooperative and provide efficiencies that are not available to an individual county. The Districts act as a political subdivision to serve on the CED board. Each County designates one County Commissioner to serve on the CED board. The Districts mirror the same boundaries as the ACCO districts.

Objectives:

  • Provide efficiency through pooling resources.
  • Provide research.
  • Provide assistance with such functions as road maintenance, construction, inspection, and equipment.
  • Conduct public discussion groups, panels, and lectures.
  • Provide courses of education and instruction.
  • Obtain and develop types of information relative to the operation of the transportation system.
  • Provide short and long range planning within the district and with other districts.
  • Provide services to Counties that will improve the quality of the transportation system and be cost effective.

Circuit Engineering Districts may also:

  • Provide construction inspection for road and bridge projects.
  • Perform Safety Bridge Inspection as required by the Federal Highway Administration.
  • Develop sign shops that are constructing roadway signs according to the latest standard.
  • Provide training for county roadway employees through coordination with OSU’s Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP).
  • Provide engineering advice.
  • Conduct county equipment auctions that as of this date have sold over $21 million dollars worth of equipment and netted the districts $418,000.
  • Provide an inventory and condition assessments of bridges, roads, signs, and roadway structures.
