* A system approach may be applied at the discretion of the DME.

NOTE: A Verification sample for asphalt binder quality and aggregate quality not required under 2000 tons of mix.

NOTE: RCE/CONTR indicates that the Contractor shall assist in the sampling at the direction of and witnessed by the Project Engineer.

**NOTE: For interlayer construction, as a minimum, sample 1 Qt. each day, and perform the MSCR test on the first and last days binder sample of interlayer placement.

*** NOTE: For interlayer construction, in addition to the required uncompacted mix sample(s) tested by the contractor and district lab, sample and retain at least one additional box of uncompacted mix each day of interlayer placement.

NOTE: For Local agency projects with no Federal Funds Independent Assurance, IA, tests are not required.

NOTE: For Local agency projects with no Federal funding, verification samples or monitor samples sampled by the DME are not required. These samples may be sampled by the contracting authority. With prior approval, these samples may be tested by the Iowa Department of Transportation Central Laboratory.

NOTE: For Local agency projects with no Federal funding, smoothness verification testing may be tested and evaluated by the DME.
