TDOT ROADWAY DESIGN GUIDELINESCHAPTER 1 GENERALEnglishRevised: 03/12/21INTRODUCTIONROADWAY DESIGN GUIDELINES AND STANDARD DRAWINGSRoadway Design Guidelines (RDG) and Standard Drawings have been created to ensurethat there is consistency in TDOT projects across the state. The Roadway Design Guidelines andStandard Drawings indicate the current recognized design standards for new construction orreconstruction of existing highways and shall be utilized while giving due regard to topography,natural conditions, availability of road material, and prevailing traffic conditions.Throughout these guidelines you will see the following terms used. To clarify the meaningsintended in this guide by the use of these terms, the following definitions apply: Designer – HQ Design, Project Development, or Consultant DesignerDesign Manager – HQ Design, Project Development, or Consultant Design ManagerDesign Team – HQ Design, Project Development, or Consultant Design Manager andConsultantTechnical Report – Transportation planning reports (i.e. Transportation InvestmentReports (TIR), Transportation Planning Report (TPR)) developed by the StrategicTransportation Investments Division.All forms mentioned throughout this chapter can be found on the Roadway Design TDOT Documents webpage.1-v

TDOT ROADWAY DESIGN GUIDELINESCHAPTER 1 GENERALEnglishRevised: 03/12/21SECTION 1 – PROJECT INFORMATION1-100.00 PROJECT RECORDSIt is essential for every Designer to create and maintain a detailed history of the designprocess for each of their projects. Information in the project records may be used if a problemarises during or after construction of the project. For example, records may be referenced aftera flood causes property damage or for other legal claims in court. Examples of records to be keptare described in Chapter 1-102.00 Project Folder.1-101.00 PROJECT SCOPE AND CHANGES IN SCOPEAs a project develops, the designer shall contact the Strategic Transportation InvestmentsDivision (STID) ([email protected], [email protected], DevelopmentandSchedulingOffice([email protected]) if the scope of the project as defined in the technical report and/or MPOTIP cannot be met. This includes all horizontal and vertical elements that would result in a designexception request, and/or other variations from the original scope such as typical section changes,additional right-of-way needs, project termini, etc. When designers submit estimates (seeChapter 1-402.00 Submittal of Estimates and all subsections), the Designer shall request themonetary value of the estimate from the Bid Analysis and Estimating Office. If the estimateincreases by more than 10% from the original technical report, the Strategic TransportationInvestments Division and Program Development and Administration Division shall be contacted.If a scope change requires a modification to the PPRM project description, the EnvironmentalDivision shall be contacted.1-102.00 PROJECT FOLDEREach Designer will be required to maintain an up-to-date digital project folder that containsinformation on the project for all three phases of development (Preliminary, Right-of-Way(R.O.W.), and Construction). The typical roadway design project folder shall consist of informationkept in chronological order by dates and divided into categories. The following are the categoriesand examples of the types of information that may be found in each:1. Deliverable Requests and Reports: Traffic data request and report Initial Studies request and corresponding letters and reports Additional survey requests Environmental documents2. Correspondence: Funding letters1-7

TDOT ROADWAY DESIGN GUIDELINESCHAPTER 1 GENERALEnglishRevised: 03/12/21 Departmental emails and correspondence including any notes taken fromverbal conversations Outside agency emails and correspondence including any notes takenfrom verbal conversations3. Field Reviews\Public Meetings: Letters sent for invitations or appointments for field reviews or publicmeetings Field review reports including sign in sheet for Preliminary, Site, R.O.W.,Constructability, Construction, and Final Field Review (all reviews that areapplicable to project) Documentation related to Public Meetings4. Calculations: Pavement quantities Sight distance Guardrail - length of need Drainage - including any reports exported from approved drainageprograms Erosion Control Grading Report (See Chapter 2-709.00, Grading Report)5. Estimated Quantities Excel fileFor each project, a folder shall be made for each of the categories and then placed in anAdobe PDF Portfolio or zip file. At Construction turn-in, the Designer shall place the AdobePortfolio or zip file containing the entire project folder onto FileNet with the naming convention:nnnnnn-nn-ProjectFolder.pdf or nnnnnn-nn-ProjectFolder.zip. The r.zip file will become a complete "Design Records" file and a part of thelegal documents substantiating the final Construction Plans. It is the responsibility of the Designeror Design Manager (for Consultant designed projects) to maintain the project folder until theconstruction project is complete.Upon receipt of the Notice of Completion from the Regional Operations Office, theDesigner or Design Manager shall upload any additional project information pertaining to theproject (revisions, requests, correspondence with Operations and/or HQ Construction Division,etc.) that has occurred since the initial construction turn-in with the naming convention ectFolder-Addendum.zip.1-103.00 CHARGING TIME TO PROJECTSFor all new projects or projects with design currently being charged to the PreliminaryEngineering NEPA (PE-N) number, Designers shall charge design work to the PreliminaryEngineering NEPA (PE-N) number through preliminary plans development. Preliminary plansdevelopment is defined as all design work prior to issuing plans for R.O.W. acquisition or forutilities only, as covered under the TDOT/FHWA Preliminary Design Agreement. Once plans are1-8

TDOT ROADWAY DESIGN GUIDELINESCHAPTER 1 GENERALEnglishRevised: 03/12/21submitted for R.O.W. acquisition or for utilities only, Designers shall begin charging design workto the Preliminary Engineering Design (PE-D) number.Designers and Managers are reminded that a task profile ID, which is the TX number forthe timesheet, will need to be set up in Edison for the Preliminary Engineering NEPA (PE-N)number and PE-D number at the appropriate stage to ensure that time is charged to the correctfunding source. The Design Manager shall request the task profile ID numbers. If there is a childPIN associated with the project, check with the Program Development Scheduling Office todetermine what number should be used to charge time.1-104.00 PDF PLAN SHEET SIZEPDF plans shall be full-size plans. It is essential that the correct plan size be used whenmaking the PDFs to ensure that printing of the plans will be to scale. Plans Assembly personnelmust combine plan sets from several divisions during the Letting phase. Personnel in this groupcan refuse PDFs that are not the correct size. If approved TDOT sheet borders are used asdiscussed in Chapter 1-202.01, Sheet Borders, the PDFs will be the correct size for 34” X 22”which shows as 33” X 21” on the PDF size and 32” X 21” for cross section sheets in AdobeAcrobat.For further guidance, refer to the document Creating PDFs from DGNs.pdf located on theStandard Design CADD Files and Documents webpage.1-105.00 FILENET PROJECT DELIVERABLESDesigners and Design Managers are responsible for archiving project developmentrecords for all new construction, reconstruction, and resurfacing projects on the Designfolder on the FileNet server utilized by the Department. Unless specified otherwise, when thisdocument refers to FileNet uploads, it is referring to the Design folder. For guidance in creatinga composite plan set in the *.pdf format refer to the document Creating PDFs from DGNs.pdflocated on the Standard Design CADD Files and Documents webpage.FileNet archiving shall include all projects with the most recently completed deliverable orplan set, estimate file, approved design exception, and Traffic Management Plan on the FileNetserver. A complete plan set (including cross-sections) in PDF format shall include all roadwayplan sheets normally found in the deliverable. The project design files (*.dgn, *.sht, *.tin, * . x l s m ,and *.gpk) will be archived with a software program having the capability of making acompressed (*.zip) file. This compressed (*.zip) file shall not be password protected.For further guidance, refer to the FileNet Project Deliverables document located on theRoadway Design Guidelines webpage. This document lists the project deliverables and plan setsthat shall be loaded on the FileNet server.1-9
