Roadway Design with InRoads



Developing roadway construction plans requires expertise from a diverse group of professionals. Traffic planners determine the approximate route, entrances, exits, and required traffic lanes. Right-of-way personnel determine the specific route and acquisition costs.

Roadway planners and designers determine roadway and roadside features required to increase traffic safety and maintain specified levels of service. Survey crews establish existing topography. Geotechnical engineers determine subsurface strata and associated shrink/swell factors. Hydrology/hydraulic engineers design storm,and possible sanitary, water systems. All of the input from these professionals, in addition to others, are placed on a set of plans that are used to assist in the bidding and subsequent construction process.

InRoads is a computerized design/drafting tool that automates and simplifies many of these tasks. It is a design software that operates on top of a CAD (computer-aided design and drafting) platform. The two CADD platforms that support InRoads are MicroStation and AutoCAD. Roadway Design With InRoads V8i was written to provide the instruction needed to operate InRoads V8i with the MicroStation V8i platform. The book is intended to serve as a
comprehensive tool for the novice and experienced user of both MicroStation V8i and InRoads V8i. This is accomplished by directing the reader in the use of the MicroStation functions necessary for the operation of InRoads and formatted output.

Roadway Design With InRoads V8i is a comprehensive text providing information on the use of not only InRoads but also roadway design concepts. It is based on a real-world roadway design project and provides information, references, guidelines, instructions, and exercises for individuals of varying skill levels. The user should, however, be aware of the appropriate design standards applicable to the project location, because the design requirements can vary between states and municipalities. The text does not present every component of every tool or concept available for roadway design. It does, however, introduce the workflow required to take a design from inception to design modification, and to the development of a contract plan set. It is an appropriate text for classroom instruction and on-the-job reference. University professors can tailor the materials to cover a semester
course schedule.
