PPM Examples

The PPM Examples illustrate the design presentation standards on each type of project plan sheet and contain valuable informational/explanatory notes.

These examples are only available on the Caltrans internet website and will be incrementally updated as needed to reflect current design presentation standards for all advertised projects on the State Highway System (SHS). Future updates to any example will supersede any example with an earlier date. All previous changes to the PPM examples are summarized in the PPM Errata for Examples
