All plans for the construction or repair of highway bridges and culverts, the estimated cost of which does not exceed the sum of $200,000, shall be submitted to the county engineer for approval. If the estimated cost thereof exceeds the sum of $200,000, such plans and estimates, before final adoption, shall be submitted to the state transportation engineer for approval.

The state transportation engineer shall examine and return the same with the engineer's approval or with such changes and modifications as the engineer may require noted thereon, with the reasons therefor. The plans shall be changed to conform to the requirements of the state transportation engineer, and shall be adopted by the board of county commissioners and all work done in accordance therewith.
