2021 Proposed Manual Updates
2021 Proposed Updates to the Missoula City Public Works Standards & Specifications Manual
The Public Works & Mobility Department has been refining and updating the Manual since it went into effect on November 17, 2020. We would like your feedback on these proposed changes, so below we've included a redline version of the current chapter with the changes indicated by strikeout or underline in red. We've also included a "clean" copy that has the changes incorporated in the text. For an overview of the changes in a chapter, see the Summary of Changes document. Also included is a redline version of each appendix or other document that has proposed updates. Documents with only minor changes (corrected typos, formatting changes, etc.) are not included below.
*Please note that links within the chapters go to the current version of the linked document. If there is a revised document, it will be shown under the appropriate chapter number below. All links will be updated once all revisions are made and approved.
