Section 39 Rewrite


Caltrans, through partnering with Industry, has released the complete rewrite of the Standard Specifications Section 39 (for HMA).  This first major rewrite in over 25 years includes significant changes to how the mix designs are completed, how the material is tested by bothe Contractors and agencies, and how pavements are constructed.  In 2008 and 2009, additional revisions to Section 39 were undertaken.
