ROGERS COUNTY, OKLAHOMA
PART 1 – GENERAL
1.1 GENERAL OVERVIEW OF PROJECT
A. To provide precast concrete spans for placement over Claremore Lake in Rogers County, Oklahoma. The spans are to be pre or post tensioned if required by the span length and design loading. A sketch of the existing structure is provided with these specifications. The outer slabs are to be approximately 14 feet 1 inches in length, and the center span is approximately 29 feet 2 ½ inches. The thickness will be controlled by the design loading. The width of the spans shall be a minimum of 24 feet 6 inches.
B. Sketches of the existing bridge structure and required guardrail plate details are included with this specification.
A. The precast fabricator shall warrant and guarantee the precast products against defects in material and workmanship for a minimum of 1 year after assembly and acceptance by the County.
B. This Section includes the performance criteria, materials, design, production, and erection of structural precast and precast, prestressed concrete for the entire project.
The work performed under this Section includes all labor, material, equipment, related services, and supervision required for the manufacture and erection of the structural precast and precast, prestressed concrete work shown on the Contract Drawings.
C. This Section includes the following:
1. Pre or Post tensioned slab span units.
2. Precast slab span units.
1.4 PERFORMANCE REQUIREMENTS

B. The fabricator shall provide a preliminary set of shop drawings within two weeks of contract award. Final drawings shall be provided within one week of receipt of comments by the Project Engineer. All submittals shall be sent to the Project Engineer.
C. Design Mixtures: For each precast concrete mixture. Include compressive strength.
D. Shop (Erection) Drawings:
1. Detail fabrication and installation of structural precast concrete units including connections at member ends and to each adjoining member.
2. Indicate locations, plan views, elevations, dimensions, shapes, and cross sections of each unit, openings, support conditions and types of reinforcement, including special reinforcement.
3. Detail loose and cast5in hardware, lifting and erection inserts, connections, and joints.
4. Indicate locations, tolerances and details of anchorage devices to be embedded in or attached to structure or other construction.
5. Coordinate and indicate openings and inserts required for guardrail attachments.
6. Indicate location of each structural precast concrete member by same identification mark placed on unit.
7. Indicate relationship of structural precast concrete members to adjacent materials.
8. Indicate locations and details of joint treatment.
9. Indicate shim sizes and grouting sequence.
10. Design Modifications: If design modifications are proposed to meet performance requirements and field conditions, notify the Engineer and submit design calculations and Shop Drawings. Do not affect the appearance, durability or strength of members when modifying details or materials. Maintain the general design concept when altering size of members and alignment.
E. Provide handling procedures, erection sequences, and for special conditions provide temporary bracing and shoring plan.
F. Comprehensive engineering design signed and sealed by a qualified professional engineer responsible for its preparation licensed in the State of Oklahoma.
1.6 INFORMATIONAL SUBMITTALS
