Caltrans Standards 2010

Caltrans' new version of the standard specifications is finally ready for distribution!  The last edition was from 2006 and the new standards will be labeled 2010.  They can be found in pdf form at http://www.dot.ca.gov/hq/esc/oe/standards.php but they will not be published in the handy reference books that we all know and love until later this year.  Until they are published in book form, Caltrans will continue to advertise projects using the 2006 standards.  Once the 2010 version is published Caltrans will begin a transition period where they will ween out the contracts that use the 2006 standards for one year, after which they will only bid projects using the 2010 standards. 

A quick guide/faq to the new standards can be found at http://www.dot.ca.gov/hq/esc/oe/2010/docs/quick_guide.pdf

Happy reading!
