Design & Drafting Manuals

The Oregon Department of Transportation's Bridge Design Manual and Bridge CAD Manual are the primary reference documents for the Bridge Section.

Additional manuals related to Bridge Section operations are available from the Bridge Manual Directory.

Bridge CAD Manual

The Bridge CAD Manual provides direction regarding the use of drawing standards for Bridge Section plan sheets. This manual supplements the Contract Plans Manual. Where these manuals are in conflict, the BCM will take precedence.

This manual version applies to new design projects as of Dec. 1, 2018.
