When to use OpenRoads SS10

Implementation of OpenRoads Technology on Roadway Projects
The finalized implementation schedule for projects designated to use OpenRoads Technology is outlined below and was developed with the assistance of District and Central Office staff.  

In accordance with the State Location & Design Engineer’s email sent on May 20th 2016, the following applies to Roadway Projects.

  • Open Roads technology will be used by VDOT staff and consultant design firms on all minimum plan projects and above where new survey was completed on or after January 1, 2016.  
  • As an option, Open Roads technology can be used on other projects that were surveyed before January 2016 if these projects have not entered the Public Involvement phase.     


Send your questions and comments to the CADD Support Helpdesk.  A trouble ticket will be created and you will get a return email with an assigned case number.
