  • ROADWAY ENGINEERING - Mike Kimlinger, PE

    Roadway Engineering is a diverse group with responsibilities that affects many aspects of project development.
    The Highway Design Manual, Standard Drawings, and the Contract Plan Development Guide are key to the
    development of projects and the preparation of Contract Plans.
Standards Programs and Grants
Highway Design Manual
The HDM is the Oregon road design standard. Roadway Engineering is responsible for updates and interpretation of the standards. 
Standard Drawings
The Oregon Standard Drawings were developed jointly by ODOT and APWA for use on public work projects in Oregon. The Senior Standards Engineer maintains files and leads the development of updates to current drawings and the creation of new drawings. 
Contract Plan Development Guide
The Contract Plans Development Guide has two volumes. Use the link below to access these volumes.
Design Exceptions
Use the following link to access a Design Exceptions Request Form.
Technical Bulletins
Technical Bulletins are issued to revise standards typically located in the HDM. The specific Technical Bulletin is located on the Technical Services Page.
Value Engineering
Value Engineering is the systematic application of recognized techniques by multi-disciplined team which identifies the function of a product or service; establishes a worth for that function; generates alternatives through the use of creative thinking; and provides the needed functions, reliably, at the lowest overall cost. Highway projects on the National Highway system that exceed 20 million dollars must have a Value Engineering Study.
