The Butler County Public Works and GIS/Mapping departments are excited to announce the debut of the first Butler County Road Closure Dashboard!
The Butler County Road Closure Dashboard is an interactive map created by the GIS Department and maintained by the Public Works Department. It was created to provide a visual to the notifications that are currently sent out in written format, so that it is easier to identify what is happening where you live, work or plan to travel. This site includes all Butler County Public Works projects as well as other projects in Butler County as we are made aware of them, such as Kansas Turnpike Authority (KTA) and State projects. The projects include bridge closures, road closures, detours and heavy construction traffic roads to avoid. Through symbolization you are able to determine if there is a current road or bridge closure or an upcoming project which will result in closures.
By using this dashboard, you have the ability to identify the official detour routes for some of the larger projects and you can identify those roads that are experiencing heavy construction traffic that you might want to avoid traveling. If you save the link to your favorites, you will be able to see at a glance all updates in your area anytime you visit the site.
