Assessment of Road User Costs (RUCs) and Liquidated Damages will be made by change order. There is no limit on
the number of hours or days that RUCs can be assessed. The Engineer will be the sole approving authority as to when
road closures, lane closures, lane width restrictions, and shoulder width restrictions are complete after traffic is returned
to the ultimate alignment. The Contract will be assessed the RUCs for failure to open lanes on time per the Contract.
DISINCENTIVES FOR CONSTRUCTION PHASES
The Maintenance of Traffic (MOT) shown on the plans for Phases 4 and 5 of this Contract will result in significant
congestion, delay, and/or operational constraints to the traveling public. Phases 4 and 5 require the simultaneous closure
of the right-turn lanes on SR 23 and SR 5 at the SR 24 intersection. These closures will result in significant congestion
and delay. Phase 4 has been allotted 27 Calendar Days and Phase 5 has been allotted 22 Calendar Days equaling a total
of 49 Calendar Days for both phases. If time extensions for Phase 4 and Phase 5 are approved by the Engineer, the
approved additional time will be added to the total of 49 Calendar Days and the Disincentive will be applied the if the
right-turn lanes remain closed beyond the approved time extensions. Failure to complete the Phase 4 and Phase 5
work within a total of 49 Calendar Days, plus any approved time extensions applicable to the right-turn lane
closures, will result in a Disincentive in the amount of Three Thousand Dollars ($3,000.00) per Calendar Day for
each Calendar Day the right-turn lanes on SR 23 and SR 5 are closed in excess of 49 Calendar Days, plus any
approved time extensions applicable to right-turn lane closures. If the Contractor elects to perform Phase 4 and 5
work concurrently with Phases 2 and 3 as permitted in the Plans, the right-turn lanes on SR 23 and SR 5 may only be
closed for a maximum of 49 Calendar Days at which point the Disincentive will be applied. The amount of disincentives

shall be deducted from any money due the Contractor, not as a penalty, but as a Liquidated Damage assessed to recover
the cost of inconvenience to the public, added cost of engineering and supervision, and the other extra expenditures of
public funds caused by the Contractor’s failure to complete the Work within an allotted time. Damages in excess of
any monies due or retained percentage shall be paid to the Department by the Contractor.
