Update and Documentation of MDOT Warranty Process and Distress Thresholds

Mississippi Department of Transportation (MDOT) implemented warranty specifications in the late 1990s as an option on construction/overlay projects. The specification included distress thresholds which, if exceeded, result in the contractor having to take action, from repair to remove and replace. MDOT seeks to do the following: (1) Document the existing warranty process; (2) Revisit the warranty thresholds to see if they need adjustment; and (3) Quantify the distress thresholds in terms of distress quantities and severities rather than deduct points.
