This seems like this should be simple, but I can't figure it out. In GEOPAK SS2 is use Roadway Designer to model the proposed design, and I actually used an old criteria file that used the Draw Trace command to show existing pavement 3" below the existing ground between existing EOP elements found in a separate dgn.
How can I do this in ORD?
Let me rephrase my question. After reading it today I see that it wasn't very clear.
How do I model existing pavement in ORD 2020 R2?Similarly, how do I show cells in cross-sections to indicate bldgs, ROW, fences, etc. in ORD. In SS2 I used Draw Ancillary Features to accomplish this.
In Power Geopak SS2 I used an old criteria file to draw existing pavement onto cross-sections. It used the Draw Trace command to draw existing pavement 3" below the existing ground using existing EOP elements found in a separate dgn file as the LT/RT edges of existing pavement. Our agency deducts the volume of pavement removal from the excavation volume since we pay for pavement removal on a "per SY" basis. We don't want to pay for it twice. Similarly, how do I show cells in cross-sections to indicate bldgs, ROW, fences, etc. in ORD. In SS2 I used Draw Ancillary Features to accomplish this.
This image shows one of my SS2 cross-sections.
I saw a video where they added a milling and overlay component and point controls to tie it to existing pavement edges. Unfortunately, I do not recall the location or any link. But if you use Google you might find it.

I believe that the Ancillary features can now be set as the cross section aspect of the feature definition.

Existing pavement can be modeled a few different ways. You can create a template that uses overlay components that follow the surface at a surface depth. The width of the template can be controlled by point controls or horizontal feature constraints. The other option is to create a terrain of the existing pavement and apply a surface template to the terrain.
Ancillary features can be drawn using civil geometry (horizontal & vertical) with the proper feature definition assigned. Take a look at the training and examples workspace, training imperial workset delivered with the software. Look for the Feature Definition called E_ROW, it is set up to display the right of way cell on the cross sections.
