Once a product has been evaluated by MassDOT Highway Division and found not to be in compliance with MassDOT Highway Division specification requirements, it is our policy not to re-evaluate that product. If, however, it can be documented that subsequent changes have been made to the product, which bring it into compliance with MassDOT Highway Division specification requirements, that product may be reconsidered for evaluation. This documentation must include the following:

  • A statement briefly describing what changes were made to the product.
  • Actual test results confirming that the modified product is in compliance with MassDOT Highway Division specification requirements.

These documents must be signed by a person who will legally bind the company indicated by a statement or title of their position in the company.
