  Q:03/23/09
R:03/25/09

Plan Sheet / Specification Reference=  Special Provision Section 10-1.08

Question= Special Provision Section 10-1.08, Lane Closure Chart No. 1
limits the reversing control of traffic to 0.5 miles and Section 10-1.11
says that a pilot car is at the option of the contractor.  If the
contractor chooses to utilize a pilot car can the length of the lane
closure be extended to a more reasonable distance for production paving?

  • Per Section 10-1.08 of the Special Provisions: "If minor deviations from the lane requirement charts are required, a written request shall be submitted to the Engineer at least 15 days before the proposed date of the closure. The Engineer may approve the deviations if there is no significant increase in the cost to the State and if the work can be expedited and better serve the public traffic."
