Design Criteria, Standard Details, and Standard Construction Specifications

The Design Criteria and Standard Details are used in all infrastructure projects completed by the City of Rio Rancho and its contractors.  The Standard Construction Specifications are typically used in all City funded infrastructure projects completed by the City of Rio Rancho and its contractors, unless those standards do not yet exist or are superseded by the New Mexico Department of Transportation (NMDOT), or the New Mexico Environmental Department (NMED) versions.  Projects funded by the NMDOT or the NMED will utilize NMDOT or NMED standard specifications.
