Task 109, FY 1999, "Improved Contracting Methods for Highway Construction Projects" (Added to NCHRP Project 10-49). In conjunction with NCHRP Project 10-49, "Improved Contracting Methods for Highway Construction Projects," this study developed stand-alone draft technical provisions for five contracting provisions: (1) incentive/disincentive provision, (2) cost-plus-time bidding, (3) lane rental, (4) warranties, and (5) nighttime construction. Possibly, the technical provisions will be cited in the AASHTO Guide Specification for Highway Construction. Work was conducted in coordination with the AASHTO Highway Subcommittee on Construction. The project has been completed; copies of the technical provisions have been distributed to members of the AASHTO Highway Subcommittee on Construction. (NCHRP Staff: A.N. Hanna)
