The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials has released a new 10th edition of its Guide Specifications for Highway Construction.
Developed by the AASHTO Committee on Construction, it offers guidance for developing transportation project contract specifications and is considered the national standard for best practices in highway and road construction.
AASHTO noted that this “consensus-based” guide is used by states and local agencies as a standard requirement for roadway construction contracts and is a basis for those in developing their own construction specifications.
The 10th edition – which replaces the 9th edition, published 12 years ago – focuses on electronic contract submittals, updated environmental requirements, and revised materials specifications.
It is also available in three formats: as a paperback book; as a PDF download for single- or five- or 10-user groupings; and as a discounted set that includes both the paperback version and the single-user PDF download version.
