Gregory J. Wilkens, P.E., P.S., has served as Butler County Engineer since 2001. Realizing over $400 million in capital improvements during his 20-year tenure, he has focused on strategic areas for growth and improvement including transportation planning, combining tested methods with the best new technology, and analysis to improve planning for the future; inter-agency cooperation and allowing the BCEO to be a true asset and partner for cities, townships, villages, and other agencies; full development of management and staff with a better, more efficient use of in-house talent; and fiscal responsibility and accountability to the taxpayers. The most recent example of a collaborative and momentous safety improvement under his administration is the Diverging Diamond Interchange at Union Centre Blvd. at I-75 in West Chester Township.
