    P-F Civil Street lines.jpg
    This is the correct way the curb, planting strip (not "parking" strip), sidewalk and buffer should be laid out. The street line width is 50 feet wide and the paved roadway is 30 feet wide. Anyone at Penn-Foster who tells you differently does not know what they are talking about.

    You can point out to them that their own instructions call for the "planting/parking" strip to be between the sidewalk and the curb. It's on Page 7 of the instructions.

    P-F Civil R.O.W..jpg
    This is a typical 50 foot wide street cross-section using Penn-Foster's own criteria of a 1 foot buffer (between the back of walk and the street line) and 6 foot wide sidewalk. Curbs are generally 6 inches wide. The layout I have pictured allows for a vehicle parked on both sides and still accommodates two way traffic.

    You can tell your instructor they can visit CADTutor and this thread to see a typical street cross-section done correctly.

    I think I have some objects(probably trees)in random areas outside my main drawing area.When I zoom/extents everything disappears...like the objects are far from each other.How can I delete the random unwanted objects?I can't find them manually.
    I tried saving the drawing as a block and starting a new project and adding that block.I had to add layers and reenter the text styles.Then I noticed that my main pick point was accurate but the other coordinates were off.The drawing looked correct but if I added anything new by the coordinates in the pennfoster project book they were in the wrong spot.There is also a layer that I cant delete.I tried isolating the layer...selecting all and deleting everything.I also looked for xref's and didn't see any linked to the layer.I can't get rid of it.Any ideas?

    I hope you saved a copy of the original drawing before you did all that.

    I would open the original drawing and try find the objects (trees?) one more time.
