Design Manual

The Henrico County Design Manual outlines the design guidelines for the development of property and roads in the County. The Manual is intended to serve as a procedural design guide that should be used in conjunction with specifications, standards, and policy directives from other County agencies as well as design manuals published by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) and the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT). The design and construction of all public roads in Henrico should conform to the details included in this Manual. Projects submitted prior to September 1, 2021 are required to comply with the 2012 Design Manual, available online here.
