What size should the plans be and what information should appear on them?
  • Please only use 8-1/2” x 11” or 11” x 17” sheets for your project plans.
  • The plans should be to scale, preferably 1” = 100’ or other as approved.
  • Show existing and proposed City of Grapevine utilities within 10' either side of the proposed construction route,
  • Highlight the proposed facilities which are tied to the nearest City utility (water, wastewater, storm drainage, and duct banks).
  • Locate and detail of any new structures to be placed within the rights-of-way.
  • The plans must include a location map with north arrow, scale, and distances from the nearest intersection to the proposed project.
  • A scaled plan view showing the distance of the proposed construction from centerline of the right-of-way, width of the right-of-way, length of the project, and relationship to any sidewalks, fences, drive approaches, and other street features within the construction zone.
  • Show landscaping if present, including the plant materials, and locations of irrigation, and lighting.
  • Include a typical cross section to show 36" depth of bury or overhead clearance and directional bore details, if applicable.
  • A profile may be necessary, if deemed so by City Staff.
  • Traffic control plans are required for all Major and Minor Arterials, and may be required for lesser classification roadways. Three copies of the traffic control plans are required.
  • If the proposed facilities are to be in the right-of-way of a recent roadway construction or reconstruction, incorporating the proposed facilities into the appropriate plan and profile sheets of the latest as-built is encouraged.
