2016 Road & Bridge Standards is Now Available

The Location & Design Division has issued a 2016 edition of the Road and Bridge Standards to coincide with the release of the 2016 Road and Bridge Specifications. Effective with this release date, VDOT will no longer provide printed versions of the Road and Bridge Standards.  The standards will now be web based and accessible via the 2016 Road and Bridge Standards website found here.
The 2016 Road & Bridge Standards will be required for all Tier 1 projects going to Advertisement on November 22, 2016 (Non Federally Eligible), December 13, 2016 (Federally Eligible) and Tier 2 projects going to Advertisement on February 14, 2017.
Minor improvements were made to the 2016 Road and Bridge Standards. Some drawings were removed from the standards, some were renamed or renumbered, and some were moved within the same section.
This cover letter for the standards noting sections of the standards that have been adjusted or revised.
With the standards being republished, the insertable sheets should be removed from the plan assembly for projects with an advertisement date on or after the dates above.
This will require the designer to do the following:
  • Revise the Title Sheet to reference the 2016 Road & Bridge Standards
  • Remove any insertable sheet that pertains to a standard with the exception of a special design drawing which would remain in the plan set.
  • Revise the Index of Sheets for the plan assembly to reflect the removal of the insertable sheet(s).
All projects using the 2016 Road and Bridge Standards shall use the 2016 Road and Bridge Specifications.
Any projects that have an advertisement date after the implementation dates listed above for the 2016 edition which elect to use the 2008 standards will require approval of the District Location & Design Engineer.
