Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Question:
Why doesn't the County post all their Standard Plans on-line? The City does, and it is very useful.

ANSWER:
Thank you for inquiring about Standard Plans on our website. The standard plan numbers designated by * and # refer to APWA/AGC and Caltrans, respectively, and are incorporated by reference. We do not have APWA/AGC or Caltrans' approval to post their standard plans on our website. You will need to contact BNI Building News Inc. at (800) 873-6397 to purchase the the APWA/AGC standard plans. AWPA/AGC's revenue is through sales of their publications. However, you may download the Caltrans standard plans referenced from their website.
