Pavement Standard Plans and Specifications
Pavement Standard Plans and Specifications provide pavement designers and engineers with information required for Caltrans contracts.
PlansPlans include the pavement Standard Plans in U.S. Customary (May 2006) and Metric (July 2004) units.
The List of Caretakers for Pavement-Related Specifications
(PDF, 13KB) identifies the contacts for pavement-related Standard Specifications, Standard Special Provisions (SSPs), and corresponding nonstandard Special Provisions (nSSPs).
The May 2006 Standard Specifications (DOC, 3.2MB) contain the standard requirements for bidding, constructing, and administering Caltrans contracts.
The Amendments to May 2006 Standard Specifications (DOC, 1 MB).
Here is a breakdown of Amendment S1-020H E A (06/20/2012).

Standard Special Provisions (SSPs) provide standardized language used with construction contracts to amend, supplement, and incorporate the Caltrans Standard Specifications.
Nonstandard Special Provisions (nSSPs) are special provisions used in situations when the standards do not adequately cover the work. NSSPs are used to modify SSPs, test newly developed pilot SSPs, or define project specific elements.
