Environmental design for highway relocation construction is difficult to implement solely by increasing the volume of written specifications. Specifications may be supplemented by illustrated manuals showing how particular operations can minimize environmental damage. For long term, effective environmental protection during construction requires attitude changes by planning, design, inspecting and construction forces at all levels in every organization. Future contracts may tell a contractor how to do a job and with what equipment.
