Standard Roadway Drawings

Revised: July 18, 2018

In an effort to provide easier and faster access to Standard Drawings, Roadway Design Division offers two ways to search for specific drawings -- by database or by section. Each tool provides the same information, but the database allows users to perform a keyword search. Additionally, each Standard Drawing has a separate webpage which displays the drawing, provides the drawing in PDF format, and includes a list of Related Standard Drawings, Related Item Numbers, and Archived Standard Drawings (if applicable).

To begin your search, select from the datatables or sections listed below.
