Facility Design Guide

Uniform Design Guide for MnDOT Projects

Switch to Road Design Manual

MnDOT is transitioning from the Road Design Manual (RDM) to its successor document, the Facility Design Guide (FDG). During this transition, both publications will be active and on line. You may navigate between publications using the blue button above.

As new sections of the FDG are published, the corresponding RDM material will be removed and linked references to the new material inserted in their place. If you are not already on the electronic mailing list for these documents, signing up here  will alert you to new updates as they occur.

Our apologies for any inconvenience. Thank you for bearing with us as we renew our road and street design guidance.
