Task 62, FY 1993, "Rewrite of AASHTO Construction Guide Specifications into Imperative Mood and Metric" (The Construction Specification Institute, Wayne N. Watson, Craig K. Haney). The AASHTO Highway Subcommittee on Construction will be undertaking another rewrite of the AASHTO Guide Specifications for Highway Construction. Based on the results of Project 20-7, Topic 48, the subcommittee wants the new Guide to be written in the imperative mood and the text to be streamlined. Therefore, the purpose of this work will be to provide the foundation for this rewrite by rewriting Divisions 100 and 200 of the Guide into the imperative mood and performing other streamlining techniques. Revisions of Divisions 100 and 200 are complete. These sections were presented to the AASHTO Highway Subcommittee on Construction at its summer meeting in August 1994. The task is complete.
