Business Process and Workflow Development for Bentley CONNECT Software

ODOT completed its upgrade of the CAD System software from V8i to CONNECT Edition in June 2021. Work is ongoing in the development of processes and workflows that take advantage of functionalities provided by the CONNECT Edition software.

ODOT's V10 WorkSpace for MicroStation CONNECT and OpenRoads Designer

The V10 WorkSpace is automatically downloaded to ODOT computers that have MicroStation CONNECT or OpenRoads Designer installed.

(Consultants may download the ODOT_CONNECT custom configuration from:  Paste this link into File Explorer; Chrome and Edge browsers do not work well with FTP)

For more information about ODOT's Upgrade to CONNECT, see Upgrading To CONNECT at ODOT.


Engineering Tips Webinar

The Engineering Applications Support Team hosts a weekly webinar on Engineering Tips.  Topics will include different versions of engineering software and operating systems that ODOT currently uses or will use in the future, as well as workflows.

We will send out emails with a subject line beginning with Engineering Tips to the Engineering Users MicroStation email distribution list. Please feel free to submit suggestions for topics, too, by emailing with a subject line of Engineering Tips Topics.

Working Remotely Help

The Working Remotely Help page is available with PDFs for you to download that may benefit ODOT employees working from home. There is information on reducing your network overhead so that you may work more efficiently with email, MicroStation V8i and ProjectWise so you don't contribute to network slow downs.

You may contact an Engineering Applications Support Analyst if you have questions about using MicroStation V8i when working from home.

2020 City/County PDFs for Vicinity Maps

City and County PDFs for 2020 that contain the layers needed to adjust the project location map are stored in Atlas_CAD_2020, for ODOT users only. Folders with "Reduced" in the name contain smaller file-size maps with the same content which may be easier to use.

Contract Plans Manual & Development Guide

The CAD Manual, the overarching reference document for CAD standards is found on the Drafting and Contract Plans Program web page. Manuals for other disciplines and the Roadway CAD Manual are also available on the same page.
The older Contract Plans Development Guide may be found on ODOT's Engineering website.
