NOTES:
1. Precast Concrete Deck Panels shall be fabricated in accordance with
Section 535 of the Standard Specifications.
2. The contractor shall submit working drawings showing the exact layout of
panel types and sizes.
3. Refer to the Design Drawings for structures with curved beams or angled
splices.
4. Joints at expansion piers shall be treated similarly to the abutment joint
details.
5. Panel widths of less than 8-0" may be used. Provide strands in the ratio
of the smaller panel width to 8-0", multiplied by the number of strands given
in the table, rounding up to the next even number of strands. The minimum
panel width is 3-0"
6. Prestressing strands shall be 3/8 -in. diameter Grade 270 seven - wire low
relaxation strands conforming to the requirements of ASTM A 416. Initial
tension shall be 17.2 kips per strand.
(Continued)

PRECAST CONCRETE DECK PANELS


502(13)

NOTES (Continued):
7. A mat of #3 reinforcing bars spaced at 6 inches O.C. in each direction
may be substituted for welded wire fabric. The welded wire fabric or the
reinforcing bars shall have the same corrosion resistance characteristics
and/or coating system as the reinforcing steel used in the cast - in - place
portion of the deck slab.
8. Concrete for panels shall have a minimum 28 day compressive strength of
5000 psi and a minimum release strength of 4000 psi. Permeability shall be
as required for the cast - in - place portion of the deck slab.
9. Precast deck panels require the use of 7-in. long shear connectors rather
than the standard 5-in. length. Payment for any additional costs will be
considered incidental to the precast deck panel pay item.
10. Where 1-0" wide girder flanges are specified on the Design Drawings, the
transverse shear connector spacing shall be 3 1/2 inches rather than the
standard 6-in. spacing.
11. When flange thicknesses differ or flange cover plates are used, the
temporary blocking thickness shall vary. Precast panels shall align vertically
to within 1/4 inch.
12. High - density expanded polystyrene foam shall be cut in the field to the
required thickness.
13. Mortar to be used for support under the deck panels shall have an
approved high range water reducing additive.
14. The specific reinforcing steel layout for the cast - in - place portions of
the slab shall be as shown on the Design Drawings.
15. If there is a conflict between these Standard Details and the Design
Drawings, the requirements of the Design Drawings shall be followed.

NOTES:
1. Prestressing strands shown in the various details are schematic in nature
and do not represent any specific design requirements.
2. Reinforcing steel shown is the required minimum. Individual designs may
vary. Bending details and hooks shall conform to the recommendations of the
current revision of ACI Standards 315 and 318.
3. For box beams, unless the design drawings specify a separate reinforced
concrete slab to be constructed over the box beams, additional upper #4 stirrups shall be provided such that the maximim spacing of the upper stirrups
over the voided areas is 12 inches.
4. All plates in the post - tensioning block - out detail shall be galvanized in
accordance with ASTM A 123.
5. Concrete around lifting devices shall be recessed a minimum of one inch
below the surface. The recess shall be patched with an approved grout after
removal of the lifting device.
6. For bridge skew angles up to 15^, the neoprene pad at the bearing area
shall cover the entire bridge seat. Seams perpendicular to the centerline of
bearing will be allowed provided that the seam occurs near the center of a
precast unit with the unit bearing approximately equally on both pad pieces.
For bridge skew angles greater than 15^, other bearing area treatment may be
shown on the design drawings.
7. The Contractor will be responsible for providing a joint filler system
adequate to contain the keyway grout during placement. No extra payment will
be made for such system or for necessary repairs or other extra work if the
joint filler system fails.
8. The shear key sealant shall be one of the polyurethane - based products
listed on the MaineDOT Qualified Products List of Pour - In - Place Joint
Sealant.
9. When a high - performance waterproofing membrane is to be applied
directly to the top of the precast units, eliminate the shear key sealant and
fill the shear key to the top of the unit with non - shrink grout.
10. If there is a conflict between these Standard Details and the Design
Drawings, the requirements of the Design Drawings shall be followed.

NOTES
1.

Prior to placing guardrail, a final check of existing conditions will be made by the
project resident and any adjustment necessary to ensure the proper functioning
of the guardrail for the purpose for which it is intended will be made accordingly.

2.

Extra length posts and W beam rub rail required within the pay limit of Item
#606.80 shall be considered incidental.

3.

Extra W Beam Rub Rail required outside of the pay limit of Item #606.80 will
be paid with guardrail Item (606.178 Guardrail Beam).

4.

Extra length posts, if needed, outside the pay limit of Item 606.80 shall be
incidental to Item 606.23.

5.

The flare taper rate of the guardrail may be steepened after crossing the clear zone
point to shorten the length of the terminal.

6.

Type (A) (soil) cut slopes terminal guardrail shall be that guardrail which
- is to extend a minimum of two 6-3" spans into the cut slope, from the first
post beyond the toe of the cut slope, as detailed herein
- is to terminate a minimum of 1-0" below the ground elevation of the back slope.

7.

In the buried portion of the terminal, posts shall be galvanized steel. Wood posts and
blocks may be used for the remainder of the terminal.

8.

The Contractor shall so arrange his work sequence to provide that each Type (A) and
(B) Terminal End shall be installed concurrently with the placement of each
section of beam rail including backfilling and shaping of the disturbed slope.

9.

Type (B) (shale or rock) Terminal installation shall consist of anchoring the guardrail
against the face of the exposed rock using guardrail end shoes as detailed herein.

10.

The final decision as to the type of cut slope terminal installation Type (A) or (B)
at each location will be based on the actual materials encountered during construction.

11.

Buried end terminals, both Type (A) and (B), will be paid as Item #606.80
complete in place.

12.

All labor, equipment, and materials necessary for the terminal end installation including
but not limited to excavation, backfilling, and slope shaping will be considered incidental
to Item #606.80.

13. Hold the top guardrail element constant with the typical barrier installation:
- When the bottom of the top of guardrail element exceedes 18" in height, at any
point of the slope, go up stream 1 post and add a bottom rail element under the
standard guardrail element.
- When the top of the installation exceeds 45" from the ground, at any point in
the installation, then both elements will be sloped down to maintain a maximum
height of 45" in front of the toe of slope.
14.

Bend the downstream end of the bottom rail to the backside of the post and bolt to
posts. Use 96" long posts, wood (see note 7) or steel, width dimensions as per
standard details at location requiring bottom rail element:
- When bolt holes are field drilled, zinc rich paint (cold galvanization) shall be
applied to all disturbed surfaces prior to bolt installation.

GENERAL NOTES:
1.

The sidewalk width shall be paved in all cases.

2.

All residential or commercial entrances 10% and over shall be paved.

NOTES ON MAXIMUM ENTRANCE PROFILES:


1.

These profiles are a guide for the majority of cases, but should be field checked
when the main line grade is steep (4% to 6% or greater) or the angle of approach
to the entrance is unusual.

2.

Generally the majority of entrances on a project will be built with flatter profiles
than these maximum cases.

3.

When grading entrances which are flatter than the maximum profiles the following
rule of thumb should be used. Do not exceed a grade % change of more than 9%
in a 6 foot increment of entrance length. This applies to both up and down profiles.

4.

Entrances with grades exceeding 15% must have a design exception. Field entrances
with grades exceeding 22% must have a design exception.

5.

Any design change to an existing entrance that is steeper than (+ or -) 6% that


adversely changes the grade (+ or -) by more than 3% will require a
design exception.
Design exception to be approved by Program Manager (or designee).

HMA used, except that cleaning objectionable material from the pavement
and furnishing and applying Item 409.15 bituminous material to joints and
contract surfaces is incidental.
A tack coat of emulsified asphalt, RS-1 or HFMS-1, Item 409.15 shall be
applied to any existing pavement at a rate of approximately 0.025 gal/sq.yd,
and on milled pavement approximately 0.05 gal/sq.yd, prior to placing a new
course. All joints between existing and new pavement will be tacked.
Crossings shall be paved within 20 days following the completion of the
crossing reconstruction.
Paved shoulders within the gage of the rail to point 24" outside of the field
side of each rail shall be a standard 6" depth of pavement. Paved shoulders
outside of this area shall be paved with 2" surface mix only.
The bituminous binder material for the mixture shall be viscosity grade
AC-10 or 20 asphalt cement.
