TDOT ORD Roadmap

Please contact the TDOT ORD Team at with any questions, reporting of defects or enhancement suggestions.   If you are or will be working on a TDOT ORD project you can request access to our ORD Users Team Site by filling out this form.


TDOT is currently using ORD 2022 Release 1 (10.11) for any new projects, but recommending that projects that were begun in ORD 2021 Release 1 or 2 (10.10) be developed in 10.10 since there are issues with the uplift process. 

As of July 2021, all new projects should be surveyed in ORD. Existing projects will be analyzed on a project-by-project basis to determine if a project should be converted to ORD. Therefore, consultants should coordinate with their applicable TDOT design manager to determine if a project should be converted or not.

 Since the TDOT ORD workspace is continuing to be enhanced, TDOT welcomes feedback and any identification of potential defects and enhancements. 

WARNING: Be sure to make a copy of your existing MicroStation V8i (SS2/SS10) dgn file(s) if you plan to open them in ORD. Information may be lost as some aspects of ORD files are not reverse compatible with MicroStation SS2/SS10 files.
