Wisconsin Department of Transportation Selects Autodesk 3-D Design Tools for Road and Highway Design

Transition to AutoCAD Civil 3D Simplifies Roadway Design Workflow for Quick and Efficient Transportation Infrastructure Development

SAN RAFAEL, Calif., June 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Autodesk, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADSK) today announced that the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) will implement AutoCAD Civil 3D software to produce new roadway designs more efficiently and cost effectively. AutoCAD Civil 3D addresses WisDOT's need for a fully integrated and easy-to-use 3-D transportation design solution as they transition from legacy software. This decision was made after a thorough, 18-month evaluation of alternative technologies.

Using AutoCAD Civil 3D software, WisDOT can automate much of the roadway design and documentation process with powerful 3-D information models. These models also allow WisDOT the ability to provide contractors with 3-D proposed surfaces for driving machine control grading projects, saving time and money during construction.

AutoCAD Civil 3D software allows WisDOT's civil engineers, designers, drafters and surveyors parallel access to the same up-to-date model, regardless of location. The software's styles-based drafting means WisDOT can quickly implement design changes and maintain coordinated, reliable information about a project.

"With more than 11,000 miles of state and interstate highways, WisDOT requires an easy-to-use and highly effective roadway design solution," said Bill Goodson, vice president, Autodesk Government. "The AutoCAD Civil 3D solution helps WisDOT -- and transportation agencies like them -- shorten the time to contract letting; reduce errors and omissions; and identify design issues early in the design process. Ultimately, this will allow transportation agencies to significantly reduce change orders and costs during construction."

Autodesk's transportation solutions offer state and local governments the ability to better design and construct infrastructure projects to meet community needs. Through an integrated workflow built on coordinated, reliable information, Autodesk solutions enable transportation departments to easily create and share digital design information and documentation; use that information to accurately visualize, simulate, and analyze performance and cost; and reliably deliver their projects faster and more economically.
