UPDATE — November 18, 2020

The City’s new Missoula City Public Works Standards and Specifications Manual goes into effect today for all infrastructure projects that have not yet been submitted for Stage 3 approval of the Public Infrastructure Review Stage Process. All new projects must follow the Manual's directives.

City Public Works & Mobility Department staff hosted a presentation via Zoom on November 17, 2020, to introduce the Manual to design and construction professionals, as well as the general public, and to answer questions. Links to the presentation slideshow and the video recording of the presentation are included on the right-hand side of this page under Important Links.

The manual is available on the City’s website at http://www.ci.missoula.mt.us/2708/Public-Works-Standards-Specifications-Ma.


Future Updates

We would like your feedback on the Manual, including suggestions for improvement and issues you may find. We are also answering questions on the Manual through the Comments & Questions tab below. Staff will respond to questions as quickly as we can and will review suggestions for potential inclusion in future editions of the manual.

In addition, City staff is still working on Chapters 1 and 2 and will present them to the Public Works Committee once they are completed, which is expected to be early in 2021. Future manual updates will be made annually.


Background

The Missoula City Public Works Standards and Specifications Manual was reviewed internally by Public Works, Development Services, and Parks Department staff, and released to the development, engineering, and construction communities, as well as the general public, for comment. Relevant comments and suggestions were incorporated into the final version of the manual. City staff then presented the document to the City Council Public Works Committee on Wednesday, September 23, 2020, and it will be adopted by administrative rule on November 18, 2020.
