County Engineer's Office
The Engineers office makes recommendations to the County Commission relative to
the design and review of infrastructure projects including: road, bridge, pathway,
miscellaneous building projects and floodplain management. The County Engineer coordinates
work conducted in the County owned right of way, and works in cooperation with the
Planning & Zoning office, Road and Bridge, and facility operators.
Grant funds will be used on 4.6 miles of Pioneer Road. Pioneer Road is an arterial
road that runs south from Slater Road to Hellbaum Road in southern Platte County.
Pioneer Road, in previous years, was used by local farms and ranches. Within the
last year traffic has increased dramatically and is expected to be the primary road
for two gravel pits, several oil and gas sites and three wind generating companies.
Pioneer Road is expected to be the hardest hit of any Platte County road.
