The mission of the Geometrics section is to provide technical assistance on geometric design features (superelevation, horizontal and vertical alignment, intersection design, interchange design). We accomplish our mission by assisting the district personnel, other governmental agencies and consultants in applying the geometric criteria.
This section performs geometric review of construction plans required by the Project Development Process (PDP) for conformance with the ODOT design standards of the Location and Design Manual, Volume 1. This section also provides geometric review quality assurance reviews for the Districts and provides geometric review training for the Districts.
GRAD is a self-paced engineering resource providing a comprehensive overview of the design components within the Location & Design Manual Vol. 1. Whether you are new to design or a seasoned user of the Location & Design Manual Vol. 1, these modules will provide viewers with an understanding of the key elements of roadway design.
