This manual has been prepared to give information and guidance to construction project personnel associated with the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT). 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.
