Basic Highway Plan Reading: Part 1 of 3 – Introduction to Plan Reading
June 1 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
The Florida LTAP Center presents this webinar series on Basic Highway Plan Reading. The series is divided into three two-hour webinars designed to provide street or road superintendents, supervisors, maintenance workers, and entry-level construction, utility, permits, and planning employees the knowledge to read highway construction plans. This series will cover the various types of plans used at road departments. Participants will discover how to read and interpret the different symbol and abbreviation standards, the features and details within plans, how to define and identify scales and dimensions found on plans, and how to read plans utilizing a sample set of highway plans. Local agency street maintenance crews and road departments will find the highway plans valuable tools to assist in right-of-way determination, easements, and the location of drainage features.
In this first session, we will introduce the basic concepts of plan reading. The following topics will be covered: Scale: What does it mean?; Stationing as a reference system; Views: Different ways of looking at a project; Decoding Symbols and Abbreviations. We will introduce a sample set of roadway plans for the webinar series.
