FHWA Web site consolidates highway specs

A new Transportation Department Web site shows all highway construction specifications from the 50 states and territories.

The National Highway Specifications site, at www.specs.fhwa.dot.gov, was a joint effort by FHWA and the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials. It serves as a clearinghouse and electronic library for agencies, contractors, construction engineers and researchers, federal highway administrator Mary Peters said.

Some documents on the site are:
  • Approved standard construction specifications and supplements from all state transportation departments

  • Current approved standard specifications

  • Supplements from the Federal Lands Highway Program office

  • Quality assurance and performance specs.
