where to start
Where to Start

Drive the Project

before you hit the road
Before You Hit the Road
  • Print out a copy of the estimate sheet and summary sheets (most current version).
  • Make sure you have a measuring wheel.
  • Take your updated Route Log.
  • Has your DMI been calibrated recently?
drive the project
Drive the Project
  • Measure the width in several locations per mile.
  • Don’t measure in curves, at mailboxes, or at entrances.
  • Note changes in Typical Section.
things to look for
Things to look for
  • Is there striping? Centerline, Edgelines, etc.
  • Are there manholes, and who are the owners?
  • Are there pavement markers to be removed?
    • Only replace on Interstates, Parkways, and TWLTL’s
  • Are there bridges or culverts?
    • Check with bridge section.
things to look for1
Things to look for
  • What types of shoulders are there?
    • Are there drop-off that need correcting
    • Can it be paved monolithic or separate pavement wedge?
  • Is there curb and gutter?
  • Are there any RR Crossings?
  • Are there ADA compliant sidewalk ramps?
things to look for2
Things to look for
  • Does the project have thermo to be replaced?
    • Include quantities on summary sheets.
  • Are there traffic or planning loops affected?
    • Include quantities on summary sheets.
  • Are there base failures that need repaired?
    • Include quantities on summary sheets.
base failures
Base Failures
  • How do you know if it’s a base failure?
    • Deep cracking
    • Rutting / pumping
    • Water / mud coming out of cracks
    • Usually located near edge of pavement
level and wedging
Level and Wedging
  • Used to correct out of section pavement.
    • Correcting cross slopes, dips, etc.
  • Not a Scratch Course.
  • How much do you need?
calculating leveling and wedging
Calculating Leveling and Wedging
  • Ride the project
  • Visual survey
  • Usually calculated as a percentage of surface quantity.
how much is too much
How much is too much
  • If the route needs more than 50% leveling and wedging, consider milling the entire route.
  • Helps to reduce pavement edge drop-offs.
  • Corrects existing rutting.
  • Re-defines pavement section.
  • At Bridge ends and RR crossings.
    • Usually 100 feet per 1 inch.
  • Curb and Gutter sections
  • Alternative to leveling and wedging.
  • Make sure milling depth is appropriate.
sidewalk handicap ramps
Sidewalk / Handicap Ramps
  • Check intersections to see if needed.
  • Not for commercial entrances.
  • Include all bid items.
  • Is it technically feasible?
    • If not, include documentation and pictures.
back in the office
Back in the Office
  • Input project data into estimate program.
  • Check all quantities for errors.
  • Verify pavement type against Warrants.
  • Pavement depth
    • 1.0”, 1.25” or 1.5” (District 1, 2, 3 only or SMA)
typical section
Typical Section
  • Complete typical sections
    • One typical for each pavement section.
    • Use common sense.
  • Show details
    • Pavement type
    • Depth
    • Type of shoulders
    • Milling if required
traffic control plan
Traffic Control Plan
  • What type is needed for this project?
  • Will night work or restricted hours be needed?
  • Are there dates where no lane closures will be allowed?
    • Holidays, festivals, etc.

    • Include Public Information Plan.
    • Complete documents for TMP.
don t forget
Don’t forget!

  • Check with Permits, Project Development, and HSIP Coordinator for conflicting projects.
  • Check with Bridge section if bridges are on the project.
  • Did you include all applicable notes?
drive the project again
Drive the project again
  • Did you miss anything?
