1Maintenance of Traffic (MOT) By: Stefanie D. Maxwell, P.E.Specialty Engineer, Office of ConstructionEzzeldin Benghuzzi, P.E.MOT Engineer, Office of Roadway Design
2RPMs missing on lane lines - Index 600, Sheet 13 requires RPMs to be installed on all lane lines at 5 feet center to center in the approach and transition of the lane shift.
3Temporary Lane Separator has white delineators - Index 600, Sheet 11 requires orange tubular markers or orange and white vertical panels.
4White temporary lane separator was installed - Index 600, Sheet 11 requires the temporary lane separator to be yellow.
5Pedestrian signal pole is placed in plastic drum encased by milling material - Spec requires all temporary traffic control devices to be a QPL product which ensures crashworthiness.
6Drop-off is greater than 3 inches located within the clear zone behind curb and gutter [Index 600, Sheet 10 requires a barrier for drop-offs greater than 3 inches within the clear zone or 1:4 shoulder treatment].
7Mixing of devices at driveway - Index 600, Sheet 9 prohibits intermixing of devices.
8Use of non-standard pedestrian channelization on bridge [Index 600, Sheet 2 requires use of pedestrian channelizing device listed on the QPL].
10Above ground hazard located in clear zone [Index 600, Sheet 3 requires a 14 clear zone for 35 mph [posted speed limit].
11Business entrance signs were on portable sign stands [Index 600, Sheet 6 requires all signs to be posted when work operation exceeds one day].Clear Sight distance not adequate. [Index 600, Sheet 2 requires adequate clear sight distance.
12The third cartridge in the Quadguard crash cushion was a Type II - Per the QPL Vendor Drawings, it should be a Type I.
13Crash cushion cartridge is damaged/crushed - Replace damaged cartridges per manufacturer’s requirements.
14Crash cushion nose support missing - Nose support is required per the manufacturer’s installation manual.
15Loose nuts on anchor bolts for crash cushions installed on concrete - QPL Vendor Drawing require 120 ft-lbs.
16Debris/above ground hazard in clear zone - Index 600, Sheet 3 requires 30 foot clear zone (runout). The stockpiled debris is between the departure line and the clear zone which shall be free of hazard.
17Barrier and crash cushion are not offset which causes the transition panel to be attached improperly - Index 415, Sheet 9 requires the barrier and crash cushion to be aligned and slightly offset when a transition panel is installed.
18Crash cushion foundation thickness questionable on shoulder - QPL Vendor Drawings require minimum of 6” of asphalt.
19Transition from guardrail to temporary barrier wall is not standard - Index 414, Sheets 9, 10, and 13 provides standard attachment to bridge rail – Type K barrier is required.
20Barrier wall on bridge does not have transition pattern - Index 414, Sheet 8 requires transition units anchor pattern of 3, 3, 2, 1.
21Transition Stakes/Anchors Barrier wall was not transitioned from freestanding to staked – Arrows below represent the transition pattern - Index 414, Sheet 8 requires transition units anchoring pattern of 1, 2, 3, 3, staked/anchored.Transition Stakes/AnchorsExisting StakesStake Stakes Stakes Stakesper unit per unit per unit per unitDirection of Traffic
22Nonstandard connection to bridge railing -Index 414, Sheet 9 requires transition splice to connect Type K to bridge railing.
23Nonstandard connection to bridge railing -Index 414, Sheet 9 requires transition splice to connect Type K to bridge railing.
24Deflection space behind low profile barrier has stored material and other debris - Index 412, Sheet 2 requires 9 inches deflection space.
25Deflection space behind low profile barrier is not free and clear of material [Index 412, Sheet 2 requires 9 inches deflection space]
26Type K Barrier is located within the deflection space of the low profile barrier wall - Index 412, Sheet 2 requires nine inches of deflection space.
27CorrectWhite delineators are used on low profile barrier and the object marker is missing [Index 600, Sheet 12 requires orange tubular markers with white sheeting. Index 412, Sheet 1 requires a Type I object marker placed at end of barrier].
28Type K abutting Low Profile Barrier - The Design Standards do not provide a connection detail for dissimilar barriers that deflect different amounts.
29Old anchor plate bolts are on traffic side of barrier - Cut off to prevent vehicle from snagging.
30Less than two foot of paved deflection behind barrier wall on a 1:10 slope - Index 414, Sheet 6 requires 2 feet of paved deflection space on a 1:10 slope for 45 mph or greater.
31Missing anchor plate - Index 415, Sheet 4 requires two anchor plates on barrier abutting crash cushion.
32Stored material is located within the deflection space - Index 415, Sheet 1 requires two feet of deflection space for 45 mph speed or less.
33Overlap of temporary barrier and no clear space between walls - Index 415, Sheet 6 requires a minimum of six sections of barrier wall at overlap and two feet of clear space between the walls.
34Type K Barrier has partial fill in the deflection space - Index 414, Sheet 7 requires a minimum of 5’ wide back fill for the full height of the barrier.
35Barrier wall staked on back side - Index 414, Sheet 6 requires barrier to be staked on the traffic side.
36Type K Barrier wall was staked in median - Index 414, Sheet 7 requires barrier to be freestanding in the median.
37Use of Index 415 barrier wall connecting pins for Type K [Index 414, Sheet 4 requires a rectangular top plate connecting pin – pin used for 415 barrier is weakened due to snake pin hole which is located at shear point and cannot be substituted]
38Barrier wall connection loops missing and broken - Replace barrier Barrier wall connection loops missing and broken - Replace barrier. Specs requires that all traffic control devices meet acceptable standards as outlined in American Traffic Safety Services Association (ATSSA’s) “Quality Guidelines for Temporary Traffic Control Devices and Features”.
39Drainage slots are filled with milling material - Spec 102 requires traffic control devices to be maintained.
40Overlap of temporary barrier and no clear space between walls - Index 415, Sheet 6 requires a minimum of six sections of barrier wall at overlap and two feet of clear space between the walls.
41Barrier placed on non flat surface - Index 415, Sheet 1 requires 1:10 or flatter surface.
42Transition from guardrail to temporary barrier wall is not standard - Index 414, Sheets 9, 10, and 13 provides standard attachment to bridge rail – Type K barrier is required.
43Barrier installed on top of curb – blunt end in clear zone [Index 415, Sheet 1 requires 2 feet of paved deflection space on a 1:10 slope for 45 mph or less].
44Barrier is installed backwards [Index 414, Sheet 4 provides the details of connection between barrier units].
45No transition from freestanding to backfilled barrier [Index 414, Sheet 8 requires staked transition of 1, 2, 3, 3 in advance of backfilled barrier].
