Bussell began his career with TxDOT in 1984 as a summer employee. After receiving his bachelor's degree in civil engineering from Texas A&M University in 1993, Loyl worked for TxDOT's Design Division's bridge section, performing both underwater and fracture critical inspections on bridges across the state.
In 1997, he received his master's degree in civil engineering from the University of Texas at Austin. In 2002, he became the Fort Worth District's assistant bridge design engineer coordinating all bridge design and managing a significant reduction in the number of structurally deficient bridges. He also served as the $1.1 billion DFW Connector deputy design project manager which was North Texas' first design-build comprehensive development agreement.
In 2010, Bussell served as the Central Design Engineer before promotion to Director of Transportation Planning and Development (TP&D). As director of TP&D, Loyl worked closely with the North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG), local entities and TxDOT staffs to develop projects and district funding priorities. From 2014 to 2018, Bussell served as the Fort Worth District's deputy district engineer, assisting the district in meeting its safety, financial, operations and customer satisfaction goals. He was also the chair of NCTCOG's Surface Transportation Technical Committee and led the district's engineering assistant program which develops and mentors engineering assistants as they work toward becoming licensed professional engineers.
Under Bussell's direction as district engineer, he also oversees over $4 billion in construction work including major projects on I-35W, the DFW Connector, and the I-30/SH 360 Interchange
