ORD Transition

OpenRoads Designer Transition

Please subscribe to our email list.

The Ohio Department of Transportation is currently migrating its CADD software from Bentley Systems V8i versions to Bentley Systems CONNECT Edition platform (this includes the transition from GEOPAK to OpenRoads Designer). One of the main drivers of this transition is due to Bentley Systems discontinuing support for its V8i products on January 1st, 2021.

In addition to discontinuing support, ODOT sees the advantage and the need to move into a 3D model-centric environment. This will allow ODOT to increase productivity, reduce design errors, and adhere to industry trends of AMG (Automated Machine Guidance) and eConstruction.
