PS&E and Let - Utility Coordination Related Documents

Let Review Standards (LRS) Job Aid - The purpose is to document what is reviewed during the let review process by the Bureau of Technical Services (BTS) Utility Unit. It also standardizes the let review process, so individuals submitting utility related documents for PS&E are receiving the same review comments from central office. It’s also a historical document to track how unique situations were handled in the past. It is advised that any WisDOT or local program agency individual preparing the utilities article of the special provisions, the DT1080 – Utilities Status Report (USR) and the General Notes page of the plan refer to this document during that process. Not all situations are included, and questions can be submitted to dotdtsdcoutilitycoordination@dot.wi.gov.
