The files linked below represent the as-built drawings for the structures. MDT provides them for informational purposes only. They do not include drawings for modifications to the structures, such as joint replacements and guardrail revisions and may not completely represent current conditions. Thus, some of the information contained in these documents may be out of date or not applicable with regard to the advertised project. The contractor should not rely solely on the as-built drawings provided for bidding purposes nor does any data in these files supersede the data in the contract documents.

I do not see any specification detailing what you want for Special Borrow. This material is not within a sub-excavation situation but is specified as part of the Typical Sections. Please specify.

Special Provision No. 33 call for this project to be a class one ride. I don't think with the length of this project the ride should even be considered. All the paving work is chopped up runs with multiple set backs. I think MDT should eliminate the ride on this project. We request it be deleted.
