Standard Specifications
          for
   Road and Bridge
     Construction
General Style – Voice & Mood

Use active voice and imperative mood for instructions to the
  Contractor.

Example
Old:
   Concrete shall be thoroughly consolidated against the faces of all
   forms and joints, including concrete in a previously constructed
   lane of pavement, by means of vibrators inserted in the concrete.

New:
  Consolidate concrete against all form faces, joints, and previously
  constructed pavement using insertion type vibrators.
General Style – Voice & Mood

Use the active voice for responsibilities of the
Department.
      The Department will inspect the forms.


Use the indicative mood when stating a fact.

      Approximate areas are shown on the plans.

Section 101.03                      Terms

If the term is capitalized, it is capitalized in the Specifications
     • Contract – includes permits, boring logs, pavement core records
     • day – definition unchanged, but use of business day or calendar
         day has been deleted from the specifications, except where
         required by State statute.
