Development of As-Built Plans in MicroStation V8

Based upon your verbal notice to proceed on this task yesterday, we hosted Mr. Marlowe Dixon of VDOT at our offices today and discussed the project’s As-Built Plan development requirements. I expect him to visit
with us again to review the first sample we create and get concurrence from others at VDOT. He agreed that for the first sample As-Built Plan, the approach outlined below worked for him:

• Use the MicroStation sheet file corresponding to the design plan as a gray background
• Transcribe markups made by the Midasco field superintendent on as-built level with color red and weight 1
• Provide electronic sample along with a hardcopy plot for review

Mr. Dixon clarified that the work should be done in MicroStation V8, the latest edition of the software.
