Department role in construction inspection.

(1) It will be the department's role during construction to confirm that the project engineer, as representative for the owner, is properly implementing the department approved construction inspection plan.
(2) The department will periodically observe the construction work to independently confirm that conditions assumed in the design stage are valid for field conditions and that construction is proceeding in accordance with the approved plans and specifications.
(3) Changes may be required by the department to be made to the approved plans and specifications to reasonably secure safety to life and property. Reasons for changes may include, but are not limited to the following:
(a) To address unanticipated field conditions;
(b) To correct omissions or errors in the approved plans and specifications;
(c) To correct situations where the construction work clearly is not being performed in a workmanlike manner and does not, in the opinion of the department, meet the performance intent of the specifications.
(4) Where deemed necessary by the department, a stop work order may be issued to temporarily halt construction until a problem can be resolved.
