Project Development
​The Project Development team is responsible for projects in the development phase, that is, before construction. This includes planning studies, bridge and highway design, environmental components, consultant prequalification and selection, right of way acquisition and utility relocation. Within the office, crew members are assigned a number of duties in three major areas.
Public Meeting


​The mission of the Planning crew is to support a safe and reliable highway system in each of the district's 10 counties through strategic planning of needs, partnering with area development districts on long-term transportation solutions, spurring involvement through public meetings on proposed projects, and more!
Ashland Interchange


​The design crew includes transportation engineers, drafting technicians, surveyors and other employees who start the state highway improvement process on paper by designing roadways, bridges and other public transportation infrastructure. Designers carry projects forward to the letting of construction contracts.

 Right of Way & Utilities

​As a concerned property owner, you will want to know the answers to: Why here? Why my property? The right of way crew is there to give you answers and work with you on acquiring land needed for projects.
