Integral End Bent Simple and Rigorous Pile Design

11/30/20: Guidance in EPG 751.1.2.22 Types of Piling , EPG 751.1.2.23 Estimating the Lengths of Piles, EPG 751. Pile Design, EPG 751.36.5.2 Structural Resistance Factor (ϕc and ϕf) for Strength Limit State and EPG 751.36.5.7 Design Values for Steel Pile was updated to implement and clarify integral end bent simple and rigorous pile design procedure.

EPG 153.18 Multimodal

11/24/20: Information is now available for the new template, MO53 Preliminary Engineering Master Agreement.

EPG 136.11.13 Documentation Requirements

11/23/20: MoDOT will no longer be approving specific software for use; the LPA must ensure the software chosen meets the outlined criteria. Guidance about what should be documented in the construction diaries was clarified in EPG Project Diaries.

EPG 751.50, I4. Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) Wrap - Bent Cap Shear Strengthening

11/20/20: New standard notes for Standard Drawing RHB08 to clarify note regarding design force.

EPG 147.3.6 Closing JOC Contracts

11/12/20: Clarified that a Materials Summary is not needed for Job Order Contracts.

Wing Lengths and C Bars

11/12/20: In EPG 751.1.2.2 Wing Lengths, guidance was added to consider making short turned-back wings sufficiently long so that the Type D barrier end section does not require extensive. In EPG 751. Slip Forming, replaced guidance about determining C bars lengths with actual length of C bars.

11/9/20: Guidance has been added (EPG 751. Reinforcing Callouts, for example) to standardize the format for reinforcing callouts.

EPG 121.3 The Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP)

11/5/20: STIP information and the annual process to update the STIP were updated to current practice.

Updated Standard Detailing Note

11/2/20: Verbiage in A2.9 was updated to match new Standard Plan wording.

EPG 129 Public Involvement and EPG Categorical Exclusion

10/30/20: Updated Programmatic Categorical Exclusion (PCE) and “virtual” public involvement requirements to bring policy into compliance with the federal NEPA regulations. EPG 129 Public Involvement was generally re-written.
