The health and safety of our team and fellow Nevadans is top priority. In accordance with Gov. Steve Sisolak’s order for state offices to transition to online and over-the-phone service, NDOT has temporarily suspended in-person services and transitioned them on-line to help reduce potential spread of the COVID-19 virus. We look forward to serving you here!


The Standard Plans are compiled using MicroStation dgn file format. The Standard Plans and Standard Specifications are intended for the Nevada Department of Transportation's (NDOT) design and construction applications. The use of these standards for applications other than their intended use may require adjustment to meet all applicable criteria. Those parties receiving copies of the NDOT's Standard Plans or Standard Specifications are responsible for authenticating the standards prior to their use for engineering.
