The road must be built to current county standards, meaning the property has been deeded and dedicated to the county; it must have a 24-foot wide, paved surface with three-foot shoulders on each side and proper drainage structures (e.g., culverts) must be in place. For more specific information, see the Jefferson County Transportation Design and Construction Manual.
