PN511_04152005_for_2008.PDF511Item Special - Patching Concrete Bridge Deck Overlays With Micro-Silica Modified Concrete4/15/2005
Intended for use where spot patching of an existing concrete bridge deck overlay is performed instead of replacing the entire existing overlay. Micro-Silica Modified Concrete is used regardless of the composition of the existing concrete overlay. This repair, as any patch, should be considered a short term fix. This fix is better than the use of cold patch or other asphalt material as the asphalt material gives the salt laden water a location to continue to pond on the concrete and help keep the corrosion process active. Questions regarding this note should be directed to the Office of Structural Engineering at 614-466-3893.
PN512_07202007_for_2008.PDF512Item Special - Patching Concrete Bridge Decks7/20/2007

PN527_04152005_for_2008.PDF527Item 515 - High Early Strength Keyway Grout For Prestressed/Post-Tensioned Concrete Members4/15/2005
Standard Bridge Drawing PSBD-1-93, on sheet 1 of 4, requires that a different mortar be used when traffic (either construction or normal vehicle) will be on the beams within seven days of grout placement or when part-width construction is being used. Reference is made in the drawing to a proposal note for the specifications regarding the mortar to be used under these circumstances. Proposal Note 527 is the note that is referenced and must be included in the contract documents on all projects where the before mentioned standard bridge drawing is used. Questions regarding this note should be directed to the Office of Structural Engineering at 614-466-3893.

It is recommended that all large projects include this note. Provide 16 hours of technical assistance in the contract. Normally only one electronic equipment is required. If you have any questions contact Office of Construction Administration at  614-644-6638.
PN651_06132003_for_2008.PDF651Herbicidal Product Data6/13/2003
Use this note for any projects which include Herbicidal Spraying. Herbicidal Spraying may be listed separately on the General Summary as an Item Special; or it may be included in other items, for example, Item 209 - Linear Grading.
PN860_04081974_for_2008.PDF860Guaranties And Warranties4/8/1974

The content of former specification SS833 is included in Appendix E in it’s entirety. Provide this Supplemental Specification on all plans that have project identified Earth-Disturbing Activities (EDA). EDA is defined as any activity that exposes bare ground or erodible materials to storm water. In addition this Supplemental Specification will be provided anywhere C&MS Item 659 Seeding, SS 870 Seeding, C&MS Item 660 Sodding, or SS 870 Sodding is being furnished. Delete all C&MS 207 Items and all SS 877 Items. Provide under the Erosion Control Heading the following Reference Items: Item 832 Each Erosion Control. Item 832 Lump Sum Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan. Provide an encumbered dollar value, to be placed in the proposal for the Item: 832 Each Erosion Control. This amount is for both the quantity and total spaces. This amount should only be provided in the C2 Estimate and in the Special Considerations Field on the Plan Package Submittal Form and in the plans. For additional guidance see the NPDES Construction Permit Implementation Plan flowchart on the Office of Structural Engineering website. Example: $10,000 set up for Item 832 Each Erosion Control then 10,000 placed in the quantity and total spaces.

This is a QC/QA specification for structure concrete.  It contains performance requirements and pay factors based on the test results reported by the contractor.  It was developed to replace Item 511, class C, S and HP concretes in structures.  Use class QSC1 for substructure concrete and QSC2 for superstructure components of the bridge.  See 898.02 for a definition of which components of the bridge are considered substructure and which are considered superstructure.  The design strengths and permeabilities are 4000 psi and 2000 coulombs respectively for QSC1; and  4500 psi  and 1500 coulombs for QSC2.   Use QSC3 only when special design strength criteria is used for the design of the structure.  Specify the required strength and permeabily in the plans and proposal item description. Do not use where warranty specifications are required.
