Construction Specifications

Construction SpecsThe current approved version of the City’s Construction Specifications references the 2015 Caltrans Standard Specifications when possible. The Construction Specifications are used by the development industry as well as the City’s capital improvement program. Many public agencies reference the Caltrans Standard  Specifications since Caltrans dedicates a significant amount of resources to keep their Specifications up-to-date by correcting known deficiencies and/or reflecting current industry practices. In 2015, Caltrans made significant changes to their Standard  Specifications.

Standard Drawings

Standard Details and Drawings are used when the same design or construction feature is used multiple times. It prevents needless re-engineering of common details and allows for consistent and repeatable construction details.

The current approved version of the City’s Standard Details and Drawings has deleted numerous drawings because they have become obsolete. Other details or drawings were modified or new ones were created to reflect new requirements and practices.
