Standard Construction Details and Specifications

Public improvement projects, such as street reconstruction, and private developments, such as building a hotel parking lot, must meet design standards. The Standard Construction Details are drawings of various municipal items, such as manholes, catch basins and erosion control fences. Engineers developing construction plans can download and use these drawings. The Standard Specification for Construction is required for all construction projects within the City limits.

The following handouts provide guides to engineering requirements that govern a topic. For more information, contact the Engineering Division at 952-563-4870.
