MEASUREMENT OF QUANTITIES
A. The method of measurement and computations to be used in determination of
quantities of Material furnished or of Work performed under the Contract will be
those methods generally recognized as conforming to good engineering practice
and will be carried to the proper significant figures or fractions of units for each
item.
B. All items measured on an area or volume (in-place) basis will be measured to the
neat line dimensions shown on the Contract drawings, stated in the Specifications,
or as directed by the Construction Manager. Unless otherwise specified,
measurements will be made horizontally or vertically.
17
C. All items which are measured by length, such as pipe culverts, under-drains, etc.,
will be measured in a horizontal plane parallel to the Structure’s base or
foundation unless otherwise shown in the Contract drawings.
D. Materials to be measured by volume in the hauling vehicle shall be hauled in
approved vehicles and measured therein at the point of delivery. Vehicles for this
purpose may be of any size or type acceptable to the Construction Manager,
provided that the body is of such shape that the actual contents may be readily and
accurately determined. When required by the Construction Manager, the loads
shall be leveled when the vehicles arrive at the point of delivery to facilitate
measurement. Measurement of volume will be the mean height times width times
length.
E. In computing volumes of excavation and embankment, the average end area
method will be used. Corrections for curvature will be made where deemed
advisable by the Construction Manager.
F. Structures will be measured according to neat lines shown in the Contract
Drawings or as directed by the Construction Manager to fit field conditions.
G. When a complete structure or structural unit is specified as the unit of
measurement, the unit will include all necessary fittings and accessories.
H. When standard manufactured items are specified such as fence, wire, plates, rolled
shapes, pipe conduit, etc., and these items are identified by gauge, unit weight,
section dimensions, etc., such identifications will be considered to be nominal
weights or dimensions.
I. The term "ton" means the short ton consisting of 2,000 pounds avoirdupois.
J. Portland cement will be measured by the pound, ton, sack, bag, or barrel. The
terms "sack" and "bag" of cement will each mean 94 pounds and the term "barrel"
of cement will mean 376 pounds.
K. Asphalt will be measured by the gallon or ton in US measure. Volumes will be
measured at 60F or will be corrected to the volume at 60F in accordance with
ASTM D4311.
L. All quantities marked "Fixed Quantity" on the bid list are approximate and denote
final pay quantities, based on the neat lines shown on the Contract drawings. The
Owner makes no representations concerning the accuracy of the quantity, nor will
the quantity be revised based on new calculations or field measurements.
However, if the neat lines are revised by Change Order, the Owner will revise the
fixed quantities accordingly.
18
M. For all pay quantities which require a field measurement of quantity for pay
purposes, the Contractor shall make said measurement, provide the Construction
Manager field notes documenting the measurement and certify as to the accuracy
of the notes and measurements prior to submittal of request for final payment for
any bid item. Measurements which cannot be verified by the Construction Manager
after completion of construction due to the Work being covered or inaccessible,
will be verified by the Construction Manager prior to covering and while the Work
is accessible.
N. Lump sum, when used means the Work described shall be completed and accepted
without measurement unless the Construction Manager orders changes in writing.
If estimated quantities of the Work to be performed are listed, they are only to
provide a basis for adjusting payment. The estimated quantities are approximate
only and are made from a reasonable interpretation of Contract drawings and
intent. No guarantee is made that computations based on the details and
dimensions shown on the Contract drawings or in the Specifications will equal
these estimated quantities.
1.04

SCOPE OF PAYMENT
Section 1-09.3 is supplemented with the following:
(February 13, 2012)
Fuel Cost Adjustment
General
The Contracting Agency will make a fuel cost adjustment, either a credit or a payment,
for qualifying changes in the index price of on-highway diesel fuel. The adjustment will
be applied to partial payments made according to Section 1-09.9.
The adjustment is not a guarantee of full compensation for fuel price changes. Any
adjustment provided by this provision shall not obligate the Contracting Agency for any
costs due solely to changes in fuel costs beyond the amount adjusted by this provision.
The Contracting Agency does not guarantee that fuel will be available at the base fuel
cost or monthly fuel cost. No additional adjustment will be made for rates of fuel
consumption or actual fuel types that differ from those specified for the purpose of
determining the adjustment.
22
For the purpose of calculating the adjustment, the Base Fuel Cost shall be the Weekly
fuel price from the U.S. Energy Information Administration Web site. The Web site
location and directions are as follows:
•
•
•
•
•
http://www.eia.gov/petroleum/gasdiesel/
On the web page, click on the West Coast less California, listed under the
heading U.S On-Highway Diesel Fuel Prices*(dollar per gallon) at the lower
end of the web page.
In the pull down box labeled Period pull down Weekly.
Click on the fuel price history found under the column heading View History
for the line Diesel (On-Highway) – All Types.
On this web page obtain the nearest weekly fuel cost for the Monday
occurring three (3) weeks prior to the date that bids are opened. This weekly
fuel cost becomes the Base Fuel Cost and is fixed for the duration of the
Contract and will be used in calculating all adjustments.
The Monthly Fuel Cost shall be the most recent Monthly fuel price from the U.S. Energy
Information Administration Web site. The Web site location and directions are as
follows:
•
•
•
•
•
http://www.eia.gov/petroleum/gasdiesel/
On the web page, click on the West Coast less California, listed under the
heading U.S On-Highway Diesel Fuel Prices*(dollar per gallon) at the lower
end of the web page.
In the pull down box labeled Period pull down Monthly.
Click on the fuel price history found under the column heading View History
for the line Diesel (On-Highway) – All Types.
On this web page obtain the most current monthly fuel price.
If the specified index ceases to be available for any reason, the Contracting Agency at its
discretion will select and begin using a substitute price source or index to establish the
Monthly Fuel Cost.
Measurement
No adjustment will be made if the Monthly Fuel Cost is within ten (10) percent of the
Base Fuel Cost. No adjustment will be made for work performed after the authorized
Time for Completion.
If the Monthly Fuel Cost is greater than or equal to 110 percent of the Base Fuel Cost,
then:
Adjustment = (Monthly Fuel Cost – (1.10 x Base Fuel Cost)) x Q
If the Monthly Fuel Cost is less than or equal to 90 percent of the Base Fuel Cost, then:
Adjustment = (Monthly Fuel Cost – (0.90 x Base Fuel Cost)) x Q
23
Where Q =  ((Fuel Usage Factor for each Eligible Bid Item) x (Quantity paid in the
current months progress estimate for each Eligible Bid Item)) for all Eligible Bid Items
listed below:

(January 5, 2015)
Steel Cost Adjustment
The Contractor may elect to participate in the steel cost adjustments for work
permanently incorporated into this Contract. Steel cost adjustment is not a guarantee of
full compensation for changes to the cost of steel items; not eligible for all items with
steel; and any adjustment provided by this provision will not obligate the Contracting
Agency for any costs beyond the amount adjusted by this provision.
This Special Provision provides the option to opt-in to steel cost adjustments for eligible
Bid items. The Contractor is provided one opportunity to opt-in and there are no future
opt-out provisions. The steel cost adjustment requirements of this Special Provision
apply for the duration of the Contract.
General
The Contractor may select Bid items from the list below to be included in the steel cost
adjustment. The Contractor is not obligated to select any Bid items or to participate in
24
the steel cost adjustment program. The steel cost adjustment will apply only to the Bid
items selected by the Contractor.
Prior to Contract execution, the Contractor shall submit the Steel Cost Adjustment OptIn Bid Item List, WSDOT Form 410-031, to the Clark County Public Transportation
Benefit Area (dba C-TRAN) Administration Office. The form is to be received at the
C-TRAN Administration Office located at 2425 NE 65th Avenue, PO Box 2529,
Vancouver, WA 98661-2529. The Steel Cost Adjustment Opt-In Bid Item List shall be
signed by an authorized representative of the Contractor. Should the Contractor fail to
return this document as required no Bid items will be eligible for steel cost adjustment.
Steel Index Values
The Contracting Agency will use the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) producer price
index (PPI) series Id: WPUSISTEEL1 index value for steel cost adjustments.
The Base Steel Materials Value (BV) will be the most recent value published on the BLS
Web site on the day of bid opening. This value will be fixed on the day of bid opening
even if the BLS lists this as a preliminary value. The Monthly Steel Materials Value (MV)
will be the final index value published on the BLS Web site for any month during the
Contract.
Measurement
The Contracting Agency has determined the initial cost basis of steel to be $0.40. This
cost basis is reflected in the steel cost adjustment calculations below, is nonnegotiable,
and will be taken as a fixed value for the duration of the Contract.
For each month that steel material is incorporated into the permanent Work of the
Contract or paid for as Materials on Hand and the MV is more than 110 percent or less
than 90 percent of the BV the Contractor shall provide the Construction Manager with
the following for each eligible Bid item by the end of the following month:
1. The weight of steel material for the month.
2. Documentation of the weight and shipment to the Contractor of the steel
material by bills of lading, invoices, or purchase orders.
Should the Contractor not provide the required documentation as specified the
following shall apply:
1. Steel material that has an MV that is more than 110 percent of the BV will not be
eligible for a steel cost adjustment.
2. The steel cost adjustment for a Bid item with an MV that is less than 90 percent
of the BV will be calculated using a weight of steel determined by the
Construction Manager.
Steel materials will not be eligible for cost adjustments until all requirements of the
Contract have been met. Steel added to a Contract as part of a Value Engineering Change
25
Proposal will not be eligible for steel cost adjustment. Steel cost adjustments made in
accordance with this Special Provision will not be reflected on payments made to the
Contractor until after the index value required for the calculation becomes final.
Preliminary index values may be used to establish the BV, but will not be used to
establish the MV in calculations.
For each Bid Item selected by the Contractor on the Steel Cost Adjustment Opt-In Bid
Item List form a cost adjustment evaluation will be made. A cost adjustment will only be
made if the MV for the month the Work associated with the Bid Item is performed
differs by more than ten-percent from the BV.
The steel cost adjustment will be determined as follows:
1. If the MV is within ten-percent of the BV, there will be no adjustment.
2. If the MV is more than 110 percent of the BV, then
CA = (((MV - BV) ÷ BV) - 0.10) × ($0.40/lb × WS)
3. If the MV is less than 90-percent of the BV, then
CA = (((MV - BV) ÷ BV) + 0.10) × ($0.40/lb × WS)
Where:
CA = Cost Adjustment, dollars
MV = Monthly Steel Materials Value from BLS for the month determined above
BV = Base Steel Materials Value taken as the most recent value published on the
BLS Web site on the day of bid opening.
WS = Weight of steel eligible for cost adjustment

1.05 PAYMENT FOR MATERIAL ON HAND
The last paragraph of Section 1-09.8 is revised to read:
(August 3, 2009)
The Contracting Agency will not pay for material on hand when the invoice cost is less
than $2,000. As materials are used in the work, credits equaling the partial payments
for them will be taken on future estimates. Each month, no later than the estimate due
date, the Contractor shall submit a letter to the Construction Manager that clearly states:
1) the amount originally paid on the invoice (or other record of production cost) for the
items on hand, 2) the dollar amount of the material incorporated into each of the
various work items for the month, and 3) the amount that should be retained in
material on hand items. If work is performed on the items and the Contractor does not
submit a letter, all of the previous material on hand payment will be deducted on the
27
estimate. Partial payment for materials on hand shall not constitute acceptance. Any
material will be rejected if found to be faulty even if partial payment for it has been
made.

PART 3 - EXECUTION
3.01
CONTRACTOR'S REVIEW
A.
3.02
Review submittals, stamp and sign, as reviewed and approved, before
submission to the Construction Manager.
CONSTRUCTION MANAGER 'S REVIEW
A.
Submittals will be reviewed for conformance to requirements of the Plans and
Specifications. Review of a separate item will not constitute review of an
assembly in which the item functions. Review will not relieve the Contractor
from his responsibility for accuracy of submittals, for conformity of submittals
to requirements of Plans and Specifications, for compatibility of described
product with contiguous products and the rest of the system, or for prosecution
and completion of the Contract in accordance with the Plans and Specifications.
B.
Review stamp will be affixed, action block will be marked, and stamp will be
signed and dated.
C.
The Construction Manager will review the submittals for general conformance
with the Contract documents and mark, sign and date or forward the submittals
to the Construction Manager or others as appropriate.
D.
The action shall have the following meanings:
1.
2.
3.
The mark "NO EXCEPTION TAKEN" is an acceptance, and means that
every illustration and description appears to conform to the respective
requirements of the Contract documents; that fabrication, assembly,
manufacture, installation, application, and erection of the illustrated and
described product may proceed; and that the submittal need not be
resubmitted.
The mark "EXCEPTIONS NOTED - RESUBMITTAL NOT REQUIRED" is an
acceptance, and means that every illustration and description appears
to conform to the respective requirements of the Contract documents
upon incorporation of the reviewer's corrections into the Work, and that
fabrication, assembly, manufacture, installation, application, and
erection of the illustrated and described product may proceed by
incorporating the noted items into the Work. Submittals so marked
need not be resubmitted unless the Contractor challenges the
reviewer's exception. Reviewer's corrections shall be shown in the asbuilt drawings.
The mark "EXCEPTIONS NOTED - RESUBMITTAL REQUIRED" means
that illustrations and descriptions generally appear to conform to the
respective requirements of the Contract documents, but contain
discrepancies or incomplete data, as noted by the reviewer, and that the
42
4.
5.
3.03
item must be resubmitted with corrections before fabrication, assembly,
manufacture, installation, application, and erection of the illustrated and
described product may proceed.
The mark "REJECTED - RESUBMITTAL REQUIRED" is a rejection, and
means that the submittal is deficient to the degree that the reviewer
cannot correct the submittal with a reasonable degree of effort, has not
made a thorough review of the submittal, and that the submittal needs
revision and is to be corrected and resubmitted.
The mark "REVIEW NOT REQUIRED" means that the Owner doesn't
require a review of the Material submitted and that the Contractor may
proceed with the Work.
CONTRACTOR'S RESPONSIBILITIES
A.
Coordinate each submittal with the requirements of the Work; place particular
emphasis upon ensuring that each submittal of one (1) trade is compatible with
other submittals of that trade and submittals of other trades.
B.
Approval of drawings and associated calculations by the Construction Manager
shall not relieve the Contractor from the responsibility for errors or omissions
in the drawings or associated calculations, or from deviation from the Contract
documents, unless such deviations were specifically called to the attention of
the Construction Manager in the letter of transmittal submitted with the
drawings. Contractor will be responsible for the correctness of the drawings,
for shop fits and field connections, and for the results obtained by use of such
drawings.
C.
Distribution of Submittals After Review: Distribute prints of accepted
submittals, bearing the Owner or its designee's stamp and signature, to
Contractor's field office and the Construction Manager's field office; to
concerned Subcontractors, Suppliers and fabricators; and to concerned
members of Contractor's Work force.
D.
Contractor's liability to the Owner, in case of deviation in the submittals from
the requirements of the Contract documents, is not relieved by the
Construction Manager's review and approval of submittals containing
deviations, unless the Construction Manager expressly approves the deviations
by issuing a Change Order.
E.
Do not start Work for which submittals are required until submittals bearing
the stamp of the Construction Manager, and signatures indicating review and
approval, have been received.
F.
Before making submittals, ensure that products will be available in the
quantities required by the Contract.

3.
Forms shall be readily removable without damaging the concrete.
Temporary openings shall be provided where required to facilitate
cleaning, inspection or placing. Reusable forms shall be thoroughly
cleaned before each application.
Chamfer strips, 3/4", feather-edged to prevent offsets, shall be used at
all exposed external angles, unless otherwise shown. Pour strips shall
be provided to assure a clean, straight line at all construction joints
that will be exposed in finished Work.
Provide recesses and joints of shape, size and spacing as shown on the
Plans.
PART 3 - EXECUTION
3.1
PREPARATION
A.
Embedded Items: Before placing concrete, all metal, anchor bolts, pipes and
conduits to be embedded shall be firmly fastened in place and braced.
Couplings shall be sealed properly to prevent concrete and water from
entering the conduit. Such items shall be free from scale, loose rust, dried
mortar or other coating that might impair the bond. Wood shall not be
embedded unless approved. Embedded items shall not be in electrical contact
with the inside face of the outside layer of reinforcing steel.
B.
Make all forms mortar-tight, set them so finished concrete will conform to
proper dimensions and contours, and make them sufficiently rigid to
prevent distortion due to pressure of the concrete and other loads incident
to construction operations. Construct and maintain forms to prevent warping
and opening of joints.
C.
Make wood forms for concrete surfaces not subject to backfill of dressed
lumber with a uniform thickness. Provide with a form liner of an approved
type. Plywood will be acceptable as a form liner if supported in an approved
manner. Ensure that all formwork for exposed concrete surfaces is smooth
with grain running in the same direction to give a good finished appearance.
Construct metal ties or anchorage within forms to permit their removal to a
depth of at least 1" from face without injury to concrete. Design all fittings for
metal ties so that, upon their removal, cavities that are left will be of
smallest possible size. Fill cavities with cement mortar and leave surface
sound, smooth, even and uniform in color.
120
D.
Keep forms in place for periods, which shall be determined as specified herein.
When forms appear to be unsatisfactory in any way, either before or during
placing of concrete, Work may be ordered stopped until defects have been
corrected.
E.
Maintain shape, strength, rigidity, water tightness and surface smoothness of
re-used forms at all times. Do not re-use warped or bulged lumber, and do
not re-use any forms that, in the opinion of the Project Engineer, are
unsatisfactory in any respect. Thoroughly clean re- used forms of all dirt,
mortar, and foreign matter prior to use.
F.
Cleaning and Coating of Forms

3.2
ERECTION AND TOLERANCES
A.
3.3
Surfaces of forms to be in contact with concrete shall be coated
prior to placing reinforcing steel. Coating shall be applied in
accordance with the Manufacturer's printed instructions.
At the time the concrete is placed in the forms, the surfaces of the
forms shall be free from encrustation of mortar, grout, or other
foreign material, and puddles of form coating.
Forms shall be erected to tolerances specified in ACI 347.
REMOVAL
A.
Forms shall be left in place until the required strength is achieved. The
Contractor shall assume full responsibility for all damage resulting from
premature removal of forms. Do not place earth backfill against walls below
grade, and do not remove forms and shoring from structural slabs or beams
until concrete has reached actual field strength equal to 75 percent of the
specified 28 day design field strength. Actual field strength shall be
determined from field cured test cylinders which shall be cured under
conditions equivalent to the most unfavorable conditions for the portions of
concrete which the cylinders represent.
B.
Do not use methods of form removal likely to cause over-stressing of
concrete. In general, remove forms from the bottom upwards. Do not
remove forms and their supports without approval. Remove supports in
such a manner as to permit concrete to uniformly and gradually take the
stresses due to its own weight.

laitance and leave surface clean. Subject to approval, an acceptable
aggregate revealing Material may be used and laitance washed off
when concrete has set.
Wood Float Finish
1.
E.
Finish by screeding and floating with straightedges to bring surfaces to
the required finish elevation shown on the Plans. While concrete is
still green, but sufficiently hardened to bear man's weight without
deep imprint, wood float to a true, even plane with no coarse
aggregate visible. Apply sufficient pressure on wood floats to bring
moisture to surface. After surface moisture has disappeared, steel
trowel concrete to produce a smooth, impervious surface, free from
trowel marks. Give an additional troweling to surface for the purpose
of burnishing. Final troweling shall produce a ringing sound from the
trowel. Do not use dry cement or additional water in troweling. Do not
use excessive troweling.
Rough Slab Finish

D.
Refrain from excessive use of "Jitterbugs" or other special tools
designed for the purpose of forcing coarse aggregate away from slab
surface. Dusting of surfaces with dry Materials will not be permitted.
Consolidate slabs and floors thoroughly by vibration. Round off edges
of slabs and tops of walls with a 1/2 inch radius steel edging tool,
unless specified otherwise.
Finish by screeding with straightedges to bring surface to required line
as shown on Plans. While concrete is still green, but hardened
sufficiently to bear cement finisher's weight, work float surface to a
true and uniform plane with no coarse aggregate visible.
Broomed Floor Finish
1.
Finish concrete as specified for monolithic finish above, except omit
final troweling and finish surface by drawing a fine-hair broom
lightly across surface. Do all brooming in same direction and parallel to
expansion joints unless otherwise shown on the Plans, or in cases of
inclined slabs, perpendicular to slope. For reservoir roof slab, broom
surface in radial direction.

In lieu of hand finishing, an approved power machine may be used for
finishing concrete floors and slabs in conformance with directions of
machine manufacturer and as approved.
REPAIR OF CONCRETE
A.
Concrete shall be inspected upon removal of forms and the extent of necessary
repairs will be determined. Such repairs shall be started within 24 hours
after removal of forms and completed within four (4) days, provided that no
repair shall be started prior to inspection of the stripped surface.
B.
Concrete that is defective, damaged or honeycombed shall be removed to
sound concrete with an air driven chipping hammer and satisfactorily
replaced with drypack or concrete. Concrete shall be used when reinforcing
steel has been exposed. When reinforcing steel has been exposed, concrete
shall be removed to a minimum depth of 1 inch behind such exposed
reinforcing steel. An initial cut 0.5 inch in depth shall be made with a
diamond or abrasive saw around defective, damaged or honeycombed concrete
in surfaces exposed to view.
PROTECTING AND CURING
A.
Protecting
1.
2.
Concrete shall be protected from rapid cooling and heating for the first
three (3) days after placing.
Concrete shall be protected against damage and defacement until Final
Acceptance, including, if necessary, providing full time surveillance
during the initial cure to prevent vandalism of the fresh concrete. Such
protection shall be made effective as soon as practicable after the
placing of unformed concrete or after the removal of forms. Flaggers
or workers shall protect newly placed concrete until concrete has
hardened enough to allow walking on surface without damage or
scarring. Surfaces or edges likely to be injured during the construction
period shall be satisfactorily protected.
136
3.
B.
Concrete that has been damaged before Final Acceptance shall be
removed and replaced with concrete matching color and texture of the
adjacent concrete areas or as directed by the Project Engineer. The
limits of removal shall be full depth and to the construction joints
nearest the damaged area. Failure to remove the damaged area to the
Project Engineer's satisfaction will be cause for the Project Engineer to
make the repairs and deduct the cost of repairs from the Contractor's
monthly pay estimate.

Outdoor Splices
Before outdoor splices are enclosed within sealed splice closures, all splices shall be
tested with an OTDR at 1310 nm and at 1550 nm. Splice losses shall be measured
and recorded by the splicing equipment (using LSA). This measurement shall not
be used in lieu of OTDR testing of the fiber at 1310nm and 1550nm. The
Contractor shall record all test results on the cable verification form provided at
the end of this section. Measurement results shall be recorded, dated, validated
by the OTDR trace printout and filed with the records of the respective cable
runs. Copies of traces and test results shall be submitted to the Engineer. If the
OTDR test results are unsatisfactory, the splice shall be unacceptable. The
unsatisfactory splice shall be replaced at the Contractor's expense. The new splice
shall then be tested to demonstrate acceptability. Copies of the test results shall be
submitted to the Engineer.
System Verification at Completion
OTDR Testing
Once the passive cabling system has been installed and is ready for activation, 100
percent of the fiber links shall be tested with the OTDR for attenuation at 1310nm
and 1550 nm. A hard copy printout and an electronic copy of the traces and test
results along with a licensed copy of the associated software shall be submitted to
the Engineer. If the OTDR test results are unsatisfactory the link shall be replaced
at the Contractor's expense. The new link shall then be tested to demonstrate
acceptability. Copies of the test results shall be submitted to the Engineer.
A 1000-meter dead zone box shall be inserted between the OTDR and the
connectorized fiber span.
The OTDR test results shall be plotted at a scale of at most 1 dB per division on the

Name of the technician performing the test
Date tests performed
Power Meter and Light Source
At the conclusion of the final OTDR testing, 100 percent of all fibers shall be tested
end to end with a power meter and light source, in accordance with EIA Optical Test
Procedure 171 and in the same wavelengths specified for the OTDR tests. These
tests shall be conducted in both directions. Test results shall be recorded, compared
and proven to be within the design link loss budgets, and filed with the other
recordings of the same links. Test results shall be submitted to the Engineer.
The power meter/light source test results shall be printed in an Excel table that lists
each fiber tested and provides the results of both wavelength measurements and
the measurement taken from each end of the fiber run. The table shall include the

Section 5-04.5 is supplemented with the following:
(August 5, 2013)
Asphalt Cost Price Adjustment
The Contracting Agency will make an Asphalt Cost Price Adjustment, either a credit
or a payment, for qualifying changes in the reference cost of asphalt binder. The
adjustment will be applied to partial payments made according to Section 1-09.9 for
the following bid items when they are included in the proposal:
32 12 20.01 HMA Cl. 0.5” PG 70-22 (Base Course).
32 12 20.02 HMA Cl. 0.5” PG 70-22 (Wearing Course).
The adjustment is not a guarantee of full compensation for changes in the cost of

be available at the reference cost.
WSDOT will establish the asphalt binder reference cost twice each month and post
the information on the WSDOT Web site at:
http://www.wsdot.wa.gov/Business/Construction/EscalationClauses.htm
The reference cost will be determined using posted prices furnished by Poten and
Partners, Inc. If the selected price source ceases to be available for any reason, then
the Contracting Agency will select a substitute price source to establish the
reference cost.
The base cost established for this contract is the reference cost posted on the Agency
Web site for the period immediately preceding the bid opening date.
Adjustments will be based on the most current reference cost for Western
Washington or Eastern Washington as posted on the Agency Web site, depending on
where the work is performed. For work completed after all authorized working days
379
are used, the adjustment will be based on the posted reference cost during which
contract time was exhausted. The adjustment will be calculated as follows:
No adjustment will be made if the reference cost is within 5 percent of the base cost.
If the reference cost is greater than or equal to 105 percent of the base cost, then
Adjustment = (Current Reference Cost – (1.05 x Base Cost)) x (Q x 0.056).
If the reference cost is less than or equal to 95 percent of the base cost, then
Adjustment = (Current Reference Cost – (0.95 x Base Cost)) x (Q x 0.056).
Where Q = total tons of all classes of HMA paid in the current month’s progress
payment.
32 12 20.06 Asphalt Cost Price Adjustment, by calculation.
“Asphalt Cost Price Adjustment” will be calculated and paid for as described in this
section. For the purpose of providing a common proposal for all bidders, the
Contracting Agency has entered an amount in the proposal to become a part of the
total bid by the Contractor.

SECTION 32 13 74 CEMENT CONCRETE PAVEMENT (SECTION 5-05)
Work under this section shall be completed in conformance with Section 5-05 – Cement
Concrete Pavement and, other sections referenced therein, of the Standard Specifications, as
amended herein.
5-05.1 Description
Section 5-05.1 is supplemented with the following
This Section specifies the construction of cement concrete pavement and bus approach slabs,
with or without reinforcement, on a prepared subgrade or base coarse as shown on the
Contract Plans or as directed by the Project Engineer.
5-05.3 Construction Requirements
5-05.3(3)E Smoothness Testing Equipment
Section 5-05.3(3)E content and title is deleted in its entirety:
5-05.3(12) Surface Smoothness
Section 5-05.3(12) is revised to read:
Pavement smoothness will be measured with a 10-foot straight edge
no later than 5:00 p.m. of the day following the placing of the
concrete. A 10-foot straightedge will be placed parallel to the
centerline so as to bridge any depressions and touch all high spots.
Should the surface vary more than Ya inch from the lower edge of the
straightedge, the high portion shall be reduced by the Contractor to
the Ya inch tolerance by abrasive means at no expense to the
Contracting Agency. It is further provided that if reduction of high
portions of the surface involves breaking, dislodging, or other
disturbance of the aggregates, such cutting will not be permitted
until the pavement has achieved its design strength. If in the
opinion of the Engineer irregularities cannot be satisfactorily
removed by such methods, the Contractor shall remove and replace
the pavement at no expense to the Contracting Agency.
Smoothness perpendicular to the centerline will be measured with a
10-foot straightedge across all lanes with the same cross slope,
including shoulders when composed of cement concrete pavement.
The overlapping 10-foot straightedge measurement shall be
discontinued at a point 6 inches from the most extreme outside
edge of the finished cement concrete pavement. The transverse
slope of the finished pavement shall be uniform to a degree such
that no variations greater than 0.25 inch are present when tested with
a 10-foot long straightedge laid in a direction perpendicular to the
381
centerline. Any areas that are in excess of this specified tolerance
shall be corrected by abrasive means.
5-05.3(17) Opening to Traffic
Section 5-05.3(17) is revised to read:
(August 5, 2013)
Maturity Testing for Concrete Pavement
The pavement shall not be opened to traffic until the maturity-strength
relationship demonstrates the pavement has a minimum compressive strength of
2,500 psi and approval of the Project Engineer. The pavement shall be cleaned prior
to opening to traffic.
The Contractor shall establish a Maturity Value on the approved concrete mix
through the use of a testing program following the WSDOT test procedure for
estimating concrete strength.
The Contractor shall establish the strength maturity relationship at least 14
calendar days prior to the production pours. The Contractor shall notify the
Project Engineer seven ( 7) days prior to performing the Strength Maturity
Relationship as to the time, date and location where the Strength Maturity
Relationship will be performed. The Contractor shall allow WSDOT the opportunity
to place maturity loggers in the test cylinders in order to calibrate the WSDOT
maturity meter. Referenced Strength Maturity Relationships from previous mix
designs shall not be allowed. A Strength Maturity Relationship shall be developed
for each mix used on the project.
The Contractor shall be responsible for the installation of the maturity
logger/sensors within the concrete pavement pour area. For panel replacements
performed under Section 5-01, place a minimum of four loggers/sensors at two
different locations. Two (2) in one ( 1 ) of the first few panel replacements and
two in the last panel replacement of the day, each day. For continuous concrete
paving operations performed under Section 5-05, place a minimum of four ( 4 )
loggers/sensors, two (2) at the beginning and two (2) at the end of the concrete
pour, each day. The Contractor shall maintain the integrity of the logger/sensors
and wires during concrete pouring, finishing and curing operations or until the
maturity information is no longer needed.
The Contractor shall perform the Quality Control Procedure to Verify the
Strength-Maturity Relationship on days 1 and 2 of concrete placement as indicated in
the test procedure.
The Contractor shall develop a Quality Control Plan based on the StrengthMaturity Relationship to monitor and provide remedial action to ensure the
concrete meets design strengths.
382
Any alteration in mix proportions or source or type of any material, in excess of
those tolerable by batching variability shall require the development of a new
strength-maturity relationship prior to its use at the Contractors time and
expense. Alterations include a change in type, source, or proportion of cement,
fly ash, coarse aggregate, fine aggregate, or admixtures. A change in water-tocementitious material ratio greater than 5.0 percent requires the development of
a new strength-maturity relationship.
Maturity Method Test Procedure
This test method provides a procedure for estimating concrete strength by
means of the maturity method. The maturity method is based on strength gain as a
function of temperature and time. This method is a modification of ASTM
C1074-98 covering the procedures for estimating concrete strength by means of
the maturity method.
The maturity method consists of three steps:
•
•
•
Develop strength-maturity relationship
Estimate in-place strength
Verify strength-maturity relationship.
The Nurse-Saul “temperature-time factor (TTF)” maturity index shall be used in this
test method, with a datum temperature of 0 oC (32 oF).
Apparatus
•
•
•
•
•
If the maturity meter has input capability for datum temperature, verify
that the proper value of the datum temperature has been selected prior to
each use.
Intellirock maturity system (or approved equivalent). This system shall
include the logger/sensor, handheld reader, and software.
The data obtained from the maturity meter shall be unalterable and uninterruptible.
The same brand and type of maturity meters shall be used in the field as
those used to develop and verify the strength-maturity relationship.
Logger/sensor wire grade shall be larger than or equal to 20 awg.
383
Contractors Procedure to Develop Strength-Maturity Relationship
Step
Action
1
For every concrete design that will be evaluated by the maturity
method, prepare a minimum of 21 cylinders in accordance with FOP
for AASHTO T 23. Additional cylinders should be cast to avoid having
to repeat the procedure. The mixture proportions and constituents of
the concrete shall be the same as those of the job concrete whose
strength will be estimated using this practice. The minimum size of
each batch shall be approximately 3 m3 (4 yd3).
2
Fresh concrete testing for each batch shall include concrete placement
temperature, slump, and air content in accordance with FOP for
AASHTO T 309, FOP for AASHTO T 119, and FOP for AASHTO T 152.
3
Embed loggers/sensors in at least two cylinders. Loggers/sensors
shall be placed 2-4 inches from any surface. Activate the
loggers/sensors.
Cure the cylinders in accordance with FOP for AASHTO T 23.
Perform compression strength tests in accordance with FOP for
AASHTO T 22 to target 2,500 psi for opening to traffic. In targeting
the opening to traffic requirement and to properly characterize and
validate the maturity calibration curve at least three of target
cylinder breaks must be broken prior to 2,500 psi. Test three
cylinders at each age and compute the average strength. The
cylinders with loggers/sensors may be tested if additional cylinders
are needed.
4
5
6
If a cylinder is obviously defective (for example, out of round, not
square, damaged due to handling), the cylinder shall be discarded. If
an individual cylinder strength is greater than 10 percent outside the
average of three cylinders, the cylinder can be considered defective
and be discarded. When two of the three cylinders are defective, a
new batch must be evaluated unless additional acceptable cylinders
are available.
At each test age, record the individual and average values of maturity
and strength for each batch on a permanent data sheet.
384
Step
7
Action
Plot the average strengths as a function of the average maturity
values, with data points shown. Using a computer spreadsheet
program such as Microsoft Excel, calculate a point-to-point
interpolation through the data. The resulting curve is the strengthmaturity relationship to be used for estimating the strength of the
concrete mixture placed in the field.
When developing the strength-maturity relationship, the spreadsheet
software allows the Contractor to develop the corresponding
maturity equation, which defines the strength-maturity relationship.
The Engineer should carefully examine the data for “outliers”, faulty
cylinder breaks, or faulty maturity readings. The Engineer should use
judgment to determine if certain points should be discarded, or
retested, or whether the entire strength-maturity relationship should
be regenerated.
Contractors Procedure to Estimate In-Place Strength
1
Step
Action
Prior to or at the time of concrete placement, install loggers/sensors
at the frequency specified. Loggers/sensors shall be placed a
minimum of 2 ft. from a panel edge 4 to 5 inches from the panel
surface. Loggers/sensors may be tied to reinforcing steel, but should
not be in direct contact with the reinforcing steel or formwork.
2
As soon as practical after concrete placement, connect and activate
the maturity meter(s).
3
The Contractor shall provide to the Engineer, prior to the opening the
pavement to traffic, encrypted data files (with software to read the
files) of the maturity data from the loggers/sensors. Data shall be
provided until the maturity is at a value that is equal to or greater
than the required strength for that concrete mixture, as determined
by the strength-maturity relationship. Additionally data shall be
provided on a record log.
385
Contractors Quality Control Procedure to Verify Strength-Maturity Relationship
Step
1
2
Action
At the specified verification interval make a three cylinders in
accordance with FOP for AASHTO T 23.
Embed a logger/sensor in one cylinder. Loggers/sensors shall be
placed 2-4 inches from any surface. Activate the logger/sensor as
soon as possible.
3
4
Cure the cylinders in accordance with FOP for AASHTO T 23.
Perform compression strength tests on all three of the cylinders
in accordance with FOP for AASHTO T 22 to verify strength and
time to reach 2,500 psi for opening to traffic. Compute the
average strength of the cylinders. If a cylinder is obviously
defective (for example, out of round, not square, damaged due to
handling), the cylinder shall be discarded. If any individual
cylinder strength is greater than 10 percent outside the average
of three cylinders, that cylinder will be considered defective and
be discarded. When two of the three cylinders are defective, the
verification procedure will have to be repeated starting at step 1.
5
Record on a permanent data sheet the maturity value at the time
of compression testing and individual and average strengths
established from the cylinder breaks. Also record the predicted
strength based on the strength-maturity relationship established
for that particular concrete design, and the percent difference
between average and predicted values. The strength maturity
relationship is verified when the predicted strength established
from the average strength maturity relationship and the cylinder
breaks are within 10 percent. A copy of the data sheet and an
encrypted f i l e for the maturity data shall be provided to the
Engineer on a daily basis.
