Ordering Information

General public, contractors, consultants, cities, and counties

Publications Services no longer sells printed department manuals or publications to the general public, contractors, consultants, cities, or counties. This service is now available through the Washington State Department of Printing’s Fulfillment Center. Printed copies of the Department of Transportation’s most requested manuals are available through an online service called myFULFILLMENT. This is a secure website. Once you have established an account with them, you may purchase any product they have available.

WSDOT employees

Employees still can order manuals from Printing Services. All manuals can be downloaded and printed using a .pdf format without charge.
