Specifications and Details

The main goal of this program is to annually update the MAG Uniform Standard Specifications and Details for Public Works Construction document and ensure that copies of the publications are available. These publications are used by agencies and private contractors within Maricopa County. They form the basis for most of the standards and specifications used by many MAG member agencies. The publication includes the Specifications, a description of definitions, techniques, and materials; and the Details, a series of technical drawings showing graphical representations of some of the specifications.
