Highway Engineering

MCDOT Highway Engineering

The Highway Engineering Division is comprised of a variety of functional sections.

The Capital Highway Design and Construction section is responsible for the administration, design and construction supervision of the capital highway programs and spot improvements projects.

The Highway Maintenance section oversees the snow and ice control work contracted to the towns. They are also responsible for the planning, design and overseeing of construction of highway maintenance work completed by towns, vendors and contractor forces. The roads to be worked on under the maintenance program are carefully reviewed and selected utilizing pavement preservation strategies, pavement rating data, and input from county and town staff.

DOT Standards

Standard Construction Details

The Monroe County Standard Details are used to detail work done within the County Right of Way. The details are to be used by consultants, developers, utilities and homeowners for work on County highways and bridges, and any permitted work done within the County Right of Way. The details used are available in English units. The details can be used for preparing permit applications, or for information and use in preparing contract documents for capital highway and bridge projects.

Standard Construction Specifications

The Monroe County Standard Specifications are used by consultants for work to be done for contracts on County Roads in lieu of similar NYSDOT specifications. The specifications are provided for information and use in preparing contract documents for capital highway and bridge improvement projects. All county highway and bridge projects are designed and constructed using metric units of measurement. The specifications are all written in metric units, unless otherwise noted.

Citizen Advisory Groups

For those who want a chance to be involved in individual projects, there are Citizen’s Advisory Groups. When MCDOT plans a capital improvement project in your area, all citizens are given the opportunity to become a member of the Citizen’s Advisory Group (CAG). As a member of the CAG, you will be reviewing reports, attending work sessions and—most importantly—giving us your input and opinion.
