Butler County designs or provides design review and approval for all county road, bridge, and culvert construction projects. Most design work for road projects and small drainage projects is performed in-house by county staff. Most large bridge projects and subdivision road improvement projects are designed by profession engineering consulting firms. All project designs and plans must meet minimum design standards established by the county which conform to standards adopted nationally.
