On an annual basis, the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT)
publishes the Five-Year Transportation Facilities Construction Program (5 Year
Construction Program). The program may include
various bridge replacement and rehabilitation projects. The 5 Year Construction
Program may be viewed on the ADOT Web site. Should any Federal, State, or local governmental agency
desire to utilize debris from a demolished bridge for beneficial use, including
shore erosion control or stabilization, ecosystem restoration, or marine habitat
creation, it must be willing to:
additional cost associated with having the debris made available
(processing, delivery, placement and use of the materials);
the placement of the debris complies with applicable law; and
assume all future
legal responsibility arising from the placement of the debris.
ADOT - Bridge Group at 602.712.481 if your agency is interested in developing
an agreement for utilization of the demolition material.
For purposes of this notice, demolition
material is considered debris if the contracting authority does not otherwise
identify use of the material in the project documents and is further made
available to other agencies as per the uses noted above.
Due to the necessity of incorporating the
disposition of debris into the contract documents when another agency requests
the use of material, only requests that are received twenty weeks or more prior
to the project bid advertising can be accommodated in the development process.
Requests made after that time may be accommodated after contract award through extra work orders. The agency
requesting use of the material by extra work order will also be responsible for
any additional costs associated with the changes.
