Preliminary Layout Geometric Design
This three-day class focuses on preliminary layout geometric design. Participants will draft preliminary layouts and demonstrate project-oriented geometric design concepts and operational and safety performance outcomes. Participants will also increase awareness of the layout submittal process, project documentation and guidance documents, MnDOT policies, and Geometric Design Support Unit’s review and approval process.
During class, participants will use design equations, charts, and resource manuals. Participants will sketch preliminary layouts and geometric design applications for highway preservation projects and for new highway construction projects. Curriculum features several case examples.
