Construction Standards, Specifications & Standard Details
The Durham construction standards, specifications and details for streets, and water and sewer are available through the links on the right. The AutoCad drawing files (version 10) are available as well.
The standards and specifications for streets, and water and sewer construction were published in 1991 and 1994, respectively. As a result, they are not comprehensive and do not include all of today’s requirements. The standard details have been a work in progress and are more up to date; however, there are some areas of construction yet to be addressed. The most recent update to the standard details was September 24, 2011.
