  • ROADWAY ENGINEERING - Steven Lindland, 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 Standards Group is responsible for maintaining the Highway Design Manual. This group provides technical support and is part of Roadway Engineering.
Standard Drawings
The Oregon Standard Drawings were developed jointly by ODOT and APWA for use on public work projects in Oregon. The Standards group maintains files and leads the development of updates to current drawings and the creation of new drawings. Fifty five revised Standard Drawings are scheduled for release in Feb 2007.
Contract Plan Development Guide
The Contract Plans Development Guide has two volumes. Use the link below to access these volumes.

Technical Bulletins
Fifteen Technical Bulletins have been drafted to revise Design Standards in the Highway Design Manual. Use the link below to view recent Tech Bulletins related to Roadway Engineering.
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.
