Guidelines for Warranty Contracting for Highway Construction

This paper presents guidelines for implementing the construction warranty contracting method in the highway construction industry. A logical, step-by-step method for effectively applying the warranty contracting method for use in the highway construction industry is developed. Relevant issues that may present obstacles to the implementation of a warranty contracting program are addressed, while best practices compiled from an evaluation of current industry state-of-the-art that will assist an interested state highway agency in creating a warranty specification are also presented. In performing this research, the current use of warranty specifications among state highway agencies was examined, and an in-depth case study of the Wisconsin Department of Transportation's warranty program was conducted.
