This article contains guidelines for Construction and Materials functions, including information from the former Construction and Materials Manual, Volumes 1-3.

For field inspection guidance, refer to EPG “Construction Inspection Guidelines” articles for the specific spec number desired. For example, 616.18 Construction Inspection Guidelines for Sec 616 is the article for temporary traffic control. Additional field inspection guidelines are located in the EPG 1100 Maintenance Materials group of articles, such as 1106 Carbide-Tipped Snowplow Blades.

Laboratory testing guidelines, like the field inspection guidelines, are located in “Laboratory Testing Guidelines” articles for the specific spec number desired. For example, 1020.8 Laboratory Testing Guidelines for Sec 1020 pertains to sampling metallic-coated steel culvert metal. Additional laboratory testing guidelines are located in the EPG 1100 Maintenance Materials group of articles, such as 1124.4 Laboratory Testing Guidelines.

The Automation Guide is available through 106.10 Automation of Material Procedures.

Payment documentation is available at Category:109 Payment Documentation Policy.

MoDOT’s Test Methods are located at 106.7 Material Inspection Test Methods.

MoDOT's pre-qualified or pre-established lists are located at 106.1 Approved and Pre-Qualified Lists. Guidance for pre-acceptance lists (PAL) and the PAL Inspection Guide is available at 106.2 Pre-Acceptance Lists (PAL). New product evaluation information and forms are located at 106.19 New Product Evaluation.

The Technician Certification Program includes a wide variety of information from how to become certified, to certification manuals to math topics.

The General Sections of the former Construction and Materials Manual are also available, including safety, calibrations, sampling, internal material records, certifications, reporting test results, summary of materials inspected, guideline for revisions, Pipe Shipping Report Form, special designs, product requirements for temporary traffic control devices, pavement marking and delineation and purchase order items.

Inspection guidelines for the Missouri Logo Sign Program, formerly included in the former Construction and Materials Manual, is available.

Guidance is also available for MoDOT inspections based on non-MoDOT specifications.
