Summary
A highway construction specification is a means to an end. Its mission is to provide the traveling public with an adequate and economical pavement on which vehicles can move easily from point to point. Specifications should be of the "end result", "materials and methods", or "restricted performance" types, depending on the conditions of acceptance. To achieve maximum economy, specification requirements must be geared to policy and cost considerations. To insure practicality, the given administrative and engineering guidelines should be consulted. This report presents guidelines for the preparation or a complete specification meeting all requirements
