Baseline Document Change Announcement
Standard Roadway Construction - Traffic Control -Bridge Construction Details Booklet, 2001
March 25, 2002
Subject: Release of the Standard Roadway Construction - Traffic Control - Bridge Construction
Details Booklet, 2001, in Metric Units.
The details in this 2001 Construction Details booklet in metric units are identical in content relative to
technical information and numbering/sequencing to the English 2001 Standard Roadway Construction
- Traffic Control - Bridge Construction Details Booklet issued under BDC00D-1, dated August 24,
2001. However, there is a difference between the 2001 metric and 2001 English booklets. The
enhancement of the font and general presentation in the English version is not done in this metric
version. Most of the details in the 2001 metric details are based on those in the 1996 metric details
issued under BDC96D-001 dated October 25, 1996 and subsequent revisions.
The concept of having both booklets with identical technical information, sequencing and numbering
minimizes the adaptation required by users that must familiarize themselves with both documents.
This is also consistent with the Department’s current practice to have parallel documents for all
standards in both English and metric units.
The following BDC Announcements are hereby superseded:
1. BDC97DS-001 dated 03/18/99
