    Default Having Trouble Figuring Out How to Draw SW Ash Creek Drive

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    I am working on the Civil Drafting Elective of Penn Foster's. I have all my intermediate and index contours drawn. The directions are as follows:

    1. SW Ash CreekDrive has a right of way width of 20'. BM# 1006 is located on the north right of way line of the road. (BM# 1006 is located at 0,0 on my grid)

    2. In the drawing, the road has 2 curves. the center of the one curve is 490.00' from BM#1006 at a bearing of N26d34'27"W from the bench mark.

    3. The center of the other curve is 1369.32' from BM#1006 at a bearing of S20d20'42"E of the bench mark.

    4. Draw the ROW and the centerline of SW Ash Creek Drive.

    Can someone please help me get started on this? I have reread the study guide and I cannot figure out if I am to calculate the delta angle, length of curve, etc. and if so how can I with the information provided. Also if someone could post an image, that would be great. Thanks!!!

    Ash Creek Drive? Can't say I've heard of this one unless it is the project with all the contouring. Is that the one you are talking about? What is the project name/number?

    Since this is an elective project, I skipped over this one due to all the errors in the instructions. I didn't want to deal with the problems with them. What you have posted dosen't even match the old instructions that I have.
    Could you attach a copy of the instruction pdf?

    Start by clicking on the "Go Advanced" button. At the next screen click on the Paper Clip icon. Find your file. Upload it. Insert it. Save. Done.

    After reviewing the instructions, there is some missing information conserning SW Ash Creek drive.

    This is what I have come up with, this may or may not be correct. I did not setup the drawing as per instructions. You have to correct this on your drawing.

    I don't understand how Penn Foster can even charge students for this training. It's laughable. Every question is a result of missing information or incomplete instructions and the instructor is nowhere to be found. If I were a student, caught up in this charade of a school I would be demanding my money back.
