Bridge Design Manual
CADD Manual
The CADD Manual was assembled for the SDDOT office of Road Design by the office of Road Design. It is broken up into chapters. The first chapter contains some general guidelines and naming conventions. The following five chapters are put together with a specific task in mind - Design, ROW, Drafting, Erosion Control, and Traffic. This Manual is not intended to be a training guide or to replace the Reference Guide that comes with InRoads. What we tried to capture were items specific to Road Design procedures or topic that seem to cause confusion. It will be updated as changes occur.
