The Welcome to Roadway Design Manual provides a list of useful resources for a new roadway designer, including the Roadway Design Division website, various manuals, and more. It has learning programs and current project development tools to assist you. For your convenience, each title is a link to the corresponding page on the Roadway Design Division’s website. A brief description is right below the title, followed by a screenshot of what each page looks like.

The Roadway Design Process Guide is intended to direct a new designer through the design process.  It provides locations for the information needed in each phase for all submittals and field reviews. It is intended to be used by designers and their supervisors to assist in the correct development of a project. The flowchart depicted in Figure 1 displays an overview of this process and can be referenced as a general guide.
