Roadway Design and Special Projects

The Roadway Design and Special Projects Program Area provides design services for developing Right of Way and Construction plan sets for projects in the Six Year Improvement Plan. Working with each of the Districts statewide, the staff provides the in-house design for overflow workload from the Districts that includes all roadway classifications. 

Additionally, the Program Area develops preliminary Design-Build plans, provides technical assistance to the Design-Build program, provides design support during construction and provides technical reviews of design plans, as needed. The staff is divided into five Design Sections, each led by a Responsible Charge Engineer.

The Program Area also provides Landscape Architecture design and inspection services for the eastern and western regions of the state.
