Welcome to the Summit County Engineer Road Records Finder!
1) For your first search, enter a search term into only one search box (Example: put clev in Road name)
2) You can click on a blue column header to sort the results in that column by alphabetical order.
3) You can view any road record by clicking "View". If there is more than one page of results, page navigation will appear above the table
Suggested Searching and Sorting Method
For your first search, type your search term into only one search box (such as "Road name") at a time and and click "Search" or press "Enter" on your keyboard. Entering search terms in multiple search boxes at the same time will limit your number of responses and is not recommended until you are very familiar with the system. Since all search terms must be found, entering extra search terms may eliminate some results that you actually wanted.
You may sort the results of the search by clicking on a blue column header at the top of a column (Note: click on the actual column header itself), such as "Townships" to sort the results in that column by alphabetical order. This method will also sort the results in the column "Road number" by alphabetical-number order ("1," "14" and "1234" all start with "1").
Then, scroll down to the desired Township or re-sort the results by clicking another column header such as date.
Individual records maybe viewed by clicking on the blue “view” button next to the Road name. Next the scanned images maybe viewed or downloaded by clicking on the appropriate button above the thumbnail image.
Note: This program will give results that contain any letter or number used as a search term. For instance, entering the word "cleve" in the "Road name" search box will give results for any road name with the letters "cleve" in it, such as "Akron Cleveland Road", "Cleveland-Massillon Road" or any other road name in our archive with the letters "cleve" in it.
This same logic is also true with numbers such as using the numbers 50"as search terms in the "Road number" search box. The results will be all the roads in our archive that contain the number "50" in it such as "50", "506", "50a", "2450" and so on.
To ensure the best possible results try various search terms such as: current road name, former road name(s) or highway number.
"Road Name" can have multiple search terms. So, if you type "cle mas" in the search box, only Road Names that match both 'cle' and 'mas' will be returned. While this is handy for narrowing down results, you could narrow them so much that you eliminate records that you actually wished to see. For example, if you enter 'cle mass road', "Cleveland-Massillon Rd" would not be among the records returned (no match for "road".)
Current and former State routes and some Interstates may be found by entering the route number in the “Road Name” field. (5, 8, 14, 18, 21, 59, 76, 77, 82, 91, 93, 162, 176, 224, 241, 261, 271, 277, 303, 359, 526, 532, 619, 631, 764) State Routes may also be listed under their “common road name” (ex.: SR 93 is also Manchester Road).
