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 Category: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, 1029.5 Laboratory Testing Guidelines for Sec 1029 pertains to fabricating prestressed concrete members for bridges. 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 109.1 Payment Documentation Manual.

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.
