751.3.1 Structural Steel (AASHTO M270/ASTM A709)

All structural steel will be AASHTO M270/ASTM A709 Grade 36 (\,F_y = 36 ksi) or Grade 50 (\,F_y = 50 ksi) except where weathering steel (AASHTO M270/ASTM A709 Grade 50W steel) is indicated on the Design Layout or in special cases. See Project Manager for use of structural steel with \,F_y greater than 50 ksi.
