The Birmingham Section started 2015 with a political reception at the Murray Building Co. jobsite at the old Merita Bread Bakery. More than 150 members were in attendance with city and state officials. Everyone enjoyed a tour of the site as well as barbecue from Joe McNabb and Hendrix Chevrolet.

ALDOT Geometric Controls

Geometric Controls
See the attachment for CIM 4-2017 for Geometric Controls reminding all of the requirements of the pay item, remembering to include it on the plans (with emphasis on certain projects), and the requirements in Sub article 105.08(b) for project personnel when it is not included on the plans.

Preconstruction Engineers were included in the distribution so that they can share with their designers in addition to the normal CIM distribution to Construction and County Transportation personnel.  This is to improve our chances of getting the information to personnel doing the plans and hopefully minimizing the work done during construction reviews.
Like normal, this is only being sent out electronically, please distribute to your personnel.
Thanks for your cooperation, and if you have any questions, please let me know.
