RECURRING REVIEW COMMENTS aka GROUNDHOG’S DAY AT THE D7 BIGHOUSE Frank W. Chupka, P.E. District Seven Consultant Management Administrator
DRAINAGE DESIGN • Drainage maps do not adequately depict offsite drainage. • Unresolved conflicts between utilities and drainage structures. • Narrative does not support calculations for the tailwater and SHGWT elevations used for pond designs.
DRAINAGE DESIGN • Storm sewer systems and drainage structures too close to the right-of-way line (constructability concerns). • Proposed sidewalks above ground potentially causing flooding problems on adjacent properties (Back of sidewalk drainage needs to be addressed).
ENVIRONMENTAL PERMITTING • No wetland limits on cross sections(This is where we show earthwork). • Not accounting for work zones or access points (Where does construction equipment enter and where will it be placed?) • Not including draft exemption request letters or draft permit application packages with Phase II plans (required by scope).
ENVIRONMENTAL PERMITTING • Not providing FDOT copies of correspondence submitted to regulatory agencies. • Other Environmental stuff (Bats and subaqueous utility and transmission lines).
ROADWAY DESIGN Design Exceptions and Variations • Still using AASHTO 2004 (not 2011) • Design Memo format available for minor variations • Cross Slope Corrections – Document exception in absence of drainage or safety concern Typical Sections • “Match Existing” – in absence of drainage or safety concern • “New” Elements on RRR – follow new construction criteria • Shoulder Design – Apply PPM Tables 2.3.1 through 2.3.4 using Design Year volumes Approval Levels • DDE – Pavement Design and Selection Reports, Typical Sections, Variations and Exceptions • DRDE – QA/QC Plans, Driveway/Sidewalk Reports, RRR Reports & Project Design Reports
STRUCTURAL DESIGN • Lack of QA/QC, use of old plans without update, mixed units, inconsistent plan notes, incorrect dimensions, etc. • The justification of the proposed alternatives in a Bridge Development Report has not been properly discussed (span arrangement, determination of minimum vertical clearance, bridge versus retaining wall, structural safety, economic, constructability and aesthetic issues).
STRUCTURAL DESIGN • Bridge rehabilitation report has not been provided and the proposed scope of rehabilitation shown in the plans cannot be justified. • Gravity walls are often proposed on sloped embankments (Design Standard 6011 is intended for installation on relatively level ground at the toe).
TRAFFIC DESIGN • Submit voltage drop calculations for each branch circuit and submit load analysis calculations for each branch circuit and each distribution point. • Some light poles require special spread footing foundations to avoid underground utility conflicts (Provide plans and structural calculations for these).
TRAFFIC DESIGN • Lighting design needs to consider and National Electrical Safety Code (NESE) and OSHA clearance requirements with overhead lines. • Provide temporary lighting on roads with existing lighting (Note to specify all construction phases).
UTILITIES • Vvh information not shown on drainage structure sheets or cross section sheets. • Show utilities on sign, signal, and lighting plans(Add note directing contractor to Utility Adjustment sheets for contact and Vvh information).
UTILITIES • Make sure drainage structure and pipe labels are turned on in utility adjustment sheets and include type of utility, disposition of utility, utility owner, and method of placement (TDUM). • Also place TDUM information in utility work by Highway Contractor Agreement(UWHCA) .
ALL DISCIPLINES • Provide supporting calculations: when “You do the math,” show us the math. • When referring to a design/build Request for Proposal (RFP), give us the chapter and verse. • Design variations are still needed even if substandard item is shown in design/build concept plans.
ALL DISCIPLINES • Do not hesitate to call a reviewer for clarification on a comment. • Continue using 2004 AASHTO Manual (FDOT has not adopted the 2011 version) • Abbreviated variation format not to be used for ADA, horizontal clearance, or sight distance design variations.
