Engineering - Development Services

Development Services reviews construction drawings for proposed residential subdivisions and commercial developments within the unincorporated areas of Butler County. To ensure new development follows the mission of the County Engineer's Office, two major components of the plan get evaluated -- traffic and drainage. Below are some of the items that get critiqued:

Traffic

    • Access Management
    • Street connectivity and layout
    • Intersection sight distance
    • Horizontal and vertical design of the street
    • Turn lane and signal analysis

Drainage

    • Storm water detention basins (flood control)
    • Street storm sewers and emergency flood routes
    • General subdivision drainage & grading
    • Floodplain delineation and mitigation

ACCESS MANAGEMENT

This article was scanned from the Ohio LTAP Quarterly newsletter, April-June 2010, Volume 25, Issue 2. It provides an excellent overview of access management and why it is important.

Access Management: What is it? Who is responsible for it? And what are some operational benefits from its implementation?
