CONTRACT DOCUMENT Construction documents present, as information available to bidders, earthwork data gathered during the design phase.
Earthwork Analysis: Take average cross-sections along the roadway alignment (typically 100 ft. stations on rural highway projects.). Plot natural ground level and proposed grade profile and determine areas of cut and fill. Calculate volume of earthwork between cross- sections .

SURVEYOR’S NOTATIONS Slope Foreslope Backslope 3 1 C 2.5
The width of a roadway is fixed by project design requirements Fore slopes/back slopes are prescribed by design manuals\ Depend on soils, drainage, sight distance, design speeds, safety considerations, etc The right of way (ROW) is usually wider in cuts than on fills to provide drainage ditches. Roadway
