This manual has been prepared to give information and guidance to construction project personnel associated with the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT).  It is not a part of any contract and therefore is not binding on the contractor.  In case of conflict between the Standard Specifications for Construction or contract documents and this manual, the specifications and contract documents will have precedence.
+
 
+
 
+
This manual has been revised throughout to incorporate changes brought about by the release of the 2012 Standard Specifications for Construction and by progress in equipment, construction practices, and materials. The format has been established to follow the standard specification outline with divisions and sections set up to facilitate revision and addition of new information as needed.

Additional information about the Wiki Construction Manual and submitting revision suggestions is located in the [[Help:Contents]] page.

With the first release of the MDOT Wiki Construction Manual there are bound to be some errors.  If you find an error on a page please contact the Content Manager for that particular Division located [[Help:Contents#Content_Suggestions|here]] in the [[Help:Contents|Help page]].  Some sections are still undergoing content revisions, most have been identified by the Content Managers and are noted as such in the Wiki Constrution Manual.

Content will be revised frequently and a way to monitor what changes have occured recently is by using the [[Special:RecentChanges|Recent changes]] page. This page will show all major and minor edits along with new users that were created. Pretty much everything that goes on in the Construction Manual. For a more specific listing of content changes you will want to see the [[Main_Page#Recent_Major_Changes|Recent Major Changes]] page or [[Main_Page#Recent_Minor_Changes|Recent Minor Changes]] page which contain manually updated lists of content changes for specific sections of the Construction Manual.

==[[#New FieldManager Helpdesk Number|New FieldManager Helpdesk Number]]==
 +
The FieldManager Helpdesk activated its new phone number, '''1-844-4MI-MDOT''' (1-844-464-6368). On the new phone menu, you can reach the FieldManager Helpdesk by selecting option 2 for AASHTOWare and then option 3 for FieldManager. The old number was deactivated on May 1st. The new number is part of the new unified help desk solution, MI MDOT Software Support, used to track and resolve software related issues from customers.

This manual provides guidance to administrative, engineering, and technical staff.  Engineering practice requires that professionals use a combination of technical skills and judgment in decision making.  Engineering judgment is necessary to allow decisions to account for unique site-specific conditions and considerations to provide high quality products, within budget, and to protect the public health, safety, and welfare.  This manual provides the general operational guidelines; however, it is understood that adaptation, adjustments, and deviations are sometimes necessary.  Innovation is a key foundational element to advance the state of engineering practice and develop more effective and efficient engineering solutions and materials.  As such, it is essential that our engineering manuals provide a vehicle to promote, pilot, or implement technologies or practices that provide efficiencies and quality products, while maintaining the safety, health, and welfare of the public.  It is expected when making significant or impactful deviations from the technical information from these guidance materials, that reasonable consultations with experts, technical committees, and/or policy setting bodies occur prior to actions within the timeframes allowed.  It is also expected that these consultations will eliminate any potential conflicts of interest, perceived or otherwise.  MDOT Leadership is committed to a culture of innovation to optimize engineering solutions.
 +
The National Society of Professional Engineers Code of Ethics for Engineering is founded on six fundamental canons.  Those canons are provided below.
 +
Engineers, in the fulfillment of their professional duties, shall:
 +
::#Hold paramount the safety, health, and welfare of the public.
 +
::#Perform Services only in areas of their competence.
 +
::#Issue public statement only in an objective and truthful manner.
 +
::#Act for each employer or client as faithful agents or trustees.
 +
::#Avoid deceptive acts.
 +
::#Conduct themselves honorably, reasonably, ethically and lawfully so as to enhance the honor, reputation, and usefulness of the profession.
 +
 +
 +
This manual has been revised throughout to incorporate changes brought about by the release of the 2012 Standard Specifications for Construction and by progress in equipment, construction practices, and materials. The format has been established to follow the standard specification outline with divisions and sections set up to facilitate revision and addition of new information as needed.

[edit] Preamble

This manual provides guidance to administrative, engineering, and technical staff. Engineering practice requires that professionals use a combination of technical skills and judgment in decision making. Engineering judgment is necessary to allow decisions to account for unique site-specific conditions and considerations to provide high quality products, within budget, and to protect the public health, safety, and welfare. This manual provides the general operational guidelines; however, it is understood that adaptation, adjustments, and deviations are sometimes necessary. Innovation is a key foundational element to advance the state of engineering practice and develop more effective and efficient engineering solutions and materials. As such, it is essential that our engineering manuals provide a vehicle to promote, pilot, or implement technologies or practices that provide efficiencies and quality products, while maintaining the safety, health, and welfare of the public. It is expected when making significant or impactful deviations from the technical information from these guidance materials, that reasonable consultations with experts, technical committees, and/or policy setting bodies occur prior to actions within the timeframes allowed. It is also expected that these consultations will eliminate any potential conflicts of interest, perceived or otherwise. MDOT Leadership is committed to a culture of innovation to optimize engineering solutions. The National Society of Professional Engineers Code of Ethics for Engineering is founded on six fundamental canons. Those canons are provided below. Engineers, in the fulfillment of their professional duties, shall:

  1. Hold paramount the safety, health, and welfare of the public.
  2. Perform Services only in areas of their competence.
  3. Issue public statement only in an objective and truthful manner.
  4. Act for each employer or client as faithful agents or trustees.
  5. Avoid deceptive acts.
  6. Conduct themselves honorably, reasonably, ethically and lawfully so as to enhance the honor, reputation, and usefulness of the profession.


This manual has been revised throughout to incorporate changes brought about by the release of the 2012 Standard Specifications for Construction and by progress in equipment, construction practices, and materials. The format has been established to follow the standard specification outline with divisions and sections set up to facilitate revision and addition of new information as needed.


Additional information about the Wiki Construction Manual and submitting revision suggestions is located in the Help:Contents page.
