Design 06-10, Construction 10-10.pdfDesign 06-10, Construction 10-1011/5/201011/05/2010Changes in Guardrail End Treatments
Effective immediately, if Guardrail is being installed on a project, the inspector will need to first check that it is per the approved Standard Drawing, if not then check the Sepia Drawings on the above web link, if not there then check the approved list of guardrail end treatment shop drawings. If the guardrail end treatment in question does not meet any of these levels of approval (standards, sepias, of shop drawings) then it shall not be installed on the project. The inspector, through the Section Engineer, should not allow the Cabinet to be placed in the position of multiple installed end treatments of questionable value.
