This is a 7-hour Roads Scholar I Elective class broken into 2 x 3.5 hour online sessions. Participants must attend both days to receive the full RS I Elective Credit.
Roadway plans are developed to provide a pictorial view of the existing facilities and proposed improvements on a particular portion of roadway. They convey information about the construction project itself ranging from the amount of construction materials used on the project to the amount of land necessary to accommodate the work. Various sections make up a complete set of highway plans and those that are included depend on the type of construction taking place.
This class takes participants through the various types of plans used at road departments. Participants discover how to read and interpret the different types of standard symbols and abbreviations. This course discusses features and details contained within plans; how to define the types of scales and identify dimensions found on plans. Sample roadway plans will be used. Many local agencies find these useful for assistance in right of way determination, easement location, and drainage features.
This course is an ELECTIVE in the Roads Scholar I course track. Click above for more RS I program details.
This course is temporarily being offered free-of-charge.
In order to receive credit for this class, attendees must stay until the end when it is dismissed by the instructor and class certificates are awarded.
