Roadway Engineering

Roadway Design Plans

Roadway Design

The Roadway Design Section’s responsibility typically begins with the scoping phase of the project. Roadway provides Predesign with comments and design solutions during the development of the Project Assessment. Roadway Design projects range from minor pavement preservation projects to highly complex grade and drains. During the Design phase for grade and drain projects, the Roadway Design Section is responsible for the geometric aspects of the construction project based on a previously determined scope.
