This article will attempt to illustrate the importance of flexibility of the design and construction inspection process to insure the project is constructed within the time and budget allotted, while at the same time insuring a quality product for the client. The 10-mile Dallas North Tollway is a 168 million bond project. It is divided into 5 major construction contracts, and in addition, a number of ancilliary contracts such as toll facilities, fencing and signing and lighting. The organization to inspect this type of facility and the flexibility necessary to respond to the contractors needs is discussed, as is the format for project record keeping.
