A UNIT COST AND CONSTRUCTION SPECIFICATION FRAMEWORK FOR UTILITY INSTALLATIONS.
[ Download from this server (1.07Mb) ] 19.07.2012, 12:09
The Utility Accommodation Rules (UAR) prescribe minimums relative to the accommodation, location,
installation, adjustment, and maintenance of utility facilities on the state right of way (ROW). The UAR
only cover basic requirements, which makes it necessary to rely on additional guidelines, specifications, and
special provisions to handle situations that are not covered by the rules. Because of the lack of standard
utility installation construction specifications at TxDOT, many different versions of special specifications
and special provisions exist around the state. Closely related to the need to standardize construction
specifications for utility installations is the need to standardize methodologies and procedures for the
determination of utility relocation costs. In practice, utility companies use a variety of ways to submit utility
relocation costs for reimbursement. This lack of standardization translates into difficulties such as how to
verify the validity of the cost data submitted for reimbursement and how to adequately prepare for audits and
other internal and external inquiries.
