Proposed revision to Section 105.17
Attached is a proposed revision to Section 105.17 of the 2016 Road and Bridge Specifications. The purpose of this revision is to bring the language into line with the intent of the Section. The intent behind this Section is that the party paying for excavation of a piece of finished work for inspection purposes is determined based on the presence of a defect, not on acceptance of the Work. Often times VDOT will accept work which has a defect in it, after a thorough investigation reveals that while that defect places that product outside the Specifications and impacts its quality, that the product will still perform at an acceptable level. The purpose of this revision is to better explain that even though VDOT accepted this type of work, the defect was still there, and the Contractor will pay for the excavation and restoration.
