Division II makes up the bulk of the Standard
Information is arranged within “groupings” or
specification number based on a specific material or
construction operation
Each Specification Section is tied to a Master Pay Item
Section 110 is Clearing and Grubbing
Pay Item for Clearing and Grubbing is 110-1
Division III of the Specification Book contains
information regarding all materials utilized on a project
Physical and Chemical Properties
Sampling, Certification and Verification information
Specific properties of different types of material within a group
 Make certain that the appropriate Section in Division III
is also reviewed prior to inspecting materials
When a Specification is added, changed or updated it is
placed in a Workbook
Workbooks are published each January and July and
are included in Contracts let after each of those dates
The current July, 2010 Workbook contains 46 of these
“new” Specifications
These “revised” specifications become part of a
Contract as Supplemental Specifications
The Supplemental Specifications included in a Contract will be
your first point of reference over the Standard Specifications
In addition to Special Provisions and Supplemental
Specifications you may find additional directives in your
Contract documents
Technical Specifications are written for an operation or
materials specific to the Contract
Developmental Specifications may be added to your
Contract where the SCO wants to “try out” a new
specification or provision in a real life situation before
adding it to the Workbook
When Standard Specifications are updated/changed they are shown in a
Workbook. The Workbooks can be found on the same website as the
102-9 Temporary Traffic Control Devices.
102-9.1 Installation and Maintenance: Install and maintain temporary traffic control
devices as detailed in the plans, Index 600 of the Design Standards and when applicable, in
accordance with the approved vendor drawings, as provided on the QPL. Erect the required
temporary traffic control devices to prevent any hazardous conditions and in conjunction with
any necessary traffic re-routing to protect the traveling public, workers, and to safeguard the
work area. Use only those devices that are on the Qualified Products List (QPL) or the Approved
Products List (APL). Immediately remove or cover any devices that do not apply to existing
All temporary traffic control devices must meet the requirements of National
Cooperative Highway Research Program Report 350 (NCHRP 350) and current FHWA
directives. Manufacturers seeking evaluation must furnish certified test reports showing that
theirproduct meets all test requirements set forth by NCHRP 350. Manufacturers seeking
evaluation of Category I devices for inclusion on the QPL shall include the manufacturer’s selfcertification letter. Manufacturer’s seeking evaluation of Category II and III devices for inclusion
on the QPL shall include the FHWA WZ numbered acceptance letter with attachments and
vendor drawings of the device in sufficient detail to enable the Engineer to distinguish between
this and similar devices. For devices requiring field assembly or special site preparation, vendor
drawings shall include all field assembly details and technical information necessary for proper
application and installation and must be signed and sealed by a Professional Engineer registered
in the State of Florida. Manufacturers seeking evaluation of Category IV devices for inclusion on
the QPL must comply with the requirements of Section 990 and include detailed vendor
drawings of the device along with technical information necessary for proper application, field
assembly and installation.
Ensure that the QPL number is permanently marked on the device at a readily visible
Notify the Engineer of any scheduled operation, which will affect traffic patterns or
safety, sufficiently in advance of commencing such operation to permit his review of the plan for
the proposed installation of temporary traffic control devices.
Ensure an employee is assigned the responsibility of maintaining the position and
condition of all temporary traffic control devices throughout the duration of the Contract.
Keep the Engineer advised at all times of the identification and means of contacting this
employee on a24-hour basis. Keep temporary traffic control devices in the correct position,
properly directed, clearly visible and clean, at all times. Ensure that all traffic control devices
meet acceptable standards as outlined in American Traffic Safety Services Association
(ATSSA’s) “Quality Standards for Work Zone Traffic Control Devices”. Immediately repair,
replace or clean damaged, defaced or dirty devices.
Design Standards are prepared to encourage uniform
application of designs and standard details
