Structural Steel (AASHTO M270/ASTM A709)

All structural steel will be AASHTO M270/ASTM A709 Grade 36 (Fy = 36 ksi) or Grade 50 (Fy = 50 ksi) and structural steel HP piling will be AASHTO M270/ASTM A709 Grade 50S (Fy = 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 Fy greater than 50 ksi.
