DIGEST OF SB513 (Updated March 31, 2005 6:29 pm - DI 84)

INDOT construction contracts. Requires the department of transportation (INDOT) to adopt rules to establish a formal procedure for highway improvement projects involving the relocation of utility facilities. Requires the rules to provide for an exchange of information among INDOT, utilities, and highway construction contractors. Allows a civil action to be brought against INDOT, utilities, or construction contractors for costs resulting from a willful violation of the rules. Allows INDOT to acquire real property for the placement or relocation of a utility facility within the right-of-way of the state highway system. After June 30, 2005, prohibits INDOT from including in a construction contract or any related documents a provision prohibiting or restricting the receipt by a contractor of reasonable compensation or reasonable expenses directly related to unforeseen conditions during a construction contract as a result of: (1) conflicts with utility facilities; or (2) delays due to utility facility relocations. Requires INDOT to revise its standard construction specifications, drawings, and other documents to eliminate any prohibition or restriction on such compensation.
