Design Manual Reference and Forms

This site contains resources that can be used for preparing environmental documentation, design exceptions, and District plans. These resources are working versions and are updated as needed. The Master SOV list usually needs to be supplemented with project specific information. Corrections to addresses are sometimes required. Please feel free to make recommendations to improve the Master SOV list and send revisions to the NDDOT Environmental and Transportation Services Division. Any other questions or input should be sent to the NDDOT Design Division.
