Dear Construction Subscriber,
You are receiving this message from the Division of Construction
Publications Unit because you have subscribed to our Construction Manual
and other publications updates.
Below are summaries of new Construction Manual Sections 4-25, 4-26, and 4
-83. We have revised and posted them at
Section 4-25, "Aggregate Subbases"
Section 4-25, “Aggregate Subbases,” has no policy changes. It discusses
the increase in the amount of reclaimed materials used for aggregate
subbases from 50 percent to 100 percent and the deletion of provisions
for measuring and paying for aggregate subbases by weight.
Aggregate for Class 1, 2, 3, and 4 aggregate subbases must be clean and
any combination of broken stone, crushed gravel, natural rough surfaced
gravel, sand, processed reclaimed asphalt concrete, portland cement
concrete, lean concrete base, and cement treated base.
Section 4-26, "Aggregate Bases"
Section 4-26, “Aggregate Bases,” has no policy changes. It discusses the
increase in the amount of reclaimed materials used for aggregate bases
from 50 percent to 100 percent.
Aggregate for Class 2 and Class 3 aggregate bases must be clean and any
combination of broken stone, crushed gravel, natural rough surfaced
gravel, sand, and processed reclaimed asphalt concrete, portland cement
concrete, lean concrete base, or cement treated base.
Section 4-83, "Railings and Barriers"
Section 4-83, “Railings and Barriers,” has no policy changes.
Publications staff have edited it for plain language and format.
Railings and barriers are used to reduce the severity of
run-off-the-road accidents, to prevent out-of-control vehicles from
crossing the median, and to decelerate errant vehicles.
