Bridge Standard Details

General Information

Bridge Standard Details (XS) are developed and maintained by the Division of Engineering Services (DES) Technical Organization. The sheets contain pre-engineered details for a variety of structural systems, such as earth retaining systems, bridge railings and underground structures.  Bridge standard details are not Standard Plans and are subject to frequent modification. 

The details are considered to be "Project Plans" for contract administration purposes in accordance with Section 5-1.02 "Contract Components", of the Standard Specifications.

Plan Preparation

Each Bridge Standard Details sheet has been prepared by a Technical Owner, who is a registered civil engineer in the State of California. The Technical Owner certifies that the details comply with departmental policies and standards through an internal approval and documentation process. The certification packages include the seal of the Technical Owner, who is the engineer in responsible charge for the component. The Technical Owner is responsible for the component details only and not for project modifications or the coordination of the components within the project.

The registered civil engineer for the project, also known as the Engineer of Record (EOR), is responsible for sealing the contract plans. Additionally, the EOR is responsible for:

  • Ensuring that the XS details are current at the time of project PS&E
  • The selection and proper application of the component design and any modifications shown.

The details may be incorporated into either the District or the Structure Plans.
