           Gerald Hitt-         a lot to the judgment of the resident     the order record optional rather than
            engineer. Most of the time that is        mandatory.
                                okay. However, some of the
                                inexperienced residents could readily
                                make themselves a real pain. I
                                believe it should be toned down, or a
                                little better control by more than one
                                person inserted.

         documentation be sent to the prime        comments.
                                contractor specifying a time that the
                                corrections be made and if not that
                                liquidated damages will start.

                                operations. I do not see any reason to
                                have this on equipment that is 20, 30,
                                40 feet off of the existing highway. It
                         would be a good thing to have these
                         lights on the haul trucks!

                         allowing road closures for the          to incorporate total lane closures and
                         contractor’s convenience. Although it   have deleted 616.4.4. These closures
                         must be approved by the engineer, it    are intended to be for a duration of up

                         limiting the timeframe or without       hearing should not be warranted. An
                         much trouble. I would think if the      example would be closing a road to

                         closure that it would be covered by     versus head to head traffic for 3

                         have a specific paragraph for road
                         closures. Also to keep in mind, the
                         Proj. Development Manual 2-03.5
                         requires a public hearing for road
                         closures and 2-03.11 requires
                         commission approval of the design
                         for projects with road closures.
