 In this Coffee Corner, Scott and Don are going to talk about some tools and features that are sometimes overlooked or misunderstood.  We will ask questions and provide answers in a “Did you know…” format.  Questions such as: Did you know the OpenRoads Designer interface has dark mode capability?  Did you know you can swap corridors between alignments?  Did you know that you can easily replace previously created offset geometry to follow a new alignment?  Did you know that profiles can be moved between geometry?  Did you know you OpenRoads Designer has special tools for overlay and resurfacing projects?  These questions and MORE will be answered with a brief demonstration of the feature or tool.
