Road Improvement Program

Pottawatomie County offers a cost-share program for individuals wishing to improve a road.  The amount the county will pay--if any--depends on several factors, including current and desired surface as well as location and traffic patterns.

For cost information, see the 2017 Uniform Fee Schedule (PDF).

Policy for Improvement of County Roads


If there is a dedicated easement recorded in the county road records and there are no visible road improvements maintained by the county within the easement, then the landowner who requested the improvement will be responsible for all cost to construct the road to minimum roadway standards established by the Public Works Office.

If there is a dedicated easement recorded in the county road records and there is an existing grass or dirt road currently maintained by the county, then the landowner who requested the improvement will be responsible for 50% of the cost to construct the road to minimum roadway standards established by the Public Works Office.
