  • Workspace
    • The zip file below contains a complete workspace and should be used to replace (not supplement) your existing MDOT SHA CAD Workspace.
    • Updates
    • The zip file below contains a complete Beta workspace. Please retain current workspace and follow the instructions in the included readme.pdf (or download the copy from the link below) for the recommended setup procedure for this workspace. This workspace must be installed in a separate folder structure from the current workspace. No files from the current workspace are to be mixed with its files under any circumstances. This workspace contains the InRoads V8i Ss4 workspace and the current InRoads V8i Ss2workspace. The V7 workspace has been completely removed. Please report any issues using the IDS email listed above.
      • New MDOT SHA CAD Standards Workspace V 2.00.03 Beta (2/01/2019) (ZIP, 89.8 MB)
      • New ReadMe.pdf (2/1/2019) (PDF, 483 KB) – Document containing detailed instructions on setting up this workspace, FAQ, Troubleshooting tips, etc. A copy is included in the zip file above.
      • This Beta version of the workspace is provided as-is and if for Users and CAD Managers to familiarize themselves with the soon to be released new workspace. It should be installed in parallel with any current workspace so that the current workspace can still be used in the event that it becomes necessary to use the current workspace instead of the Beta workspace.
