Incentive/DisincentiveAn Incentive/Disincentive in a contract will pay a contractor an incentive for each day that he gets the bridge open to traffic early, up to a set maximum amount. If the contractor is late getting the bridge open to traffic, he will be charged a disincentive for each day that the bridge is not open, without a maximum limit.

ProctorThe Proctor compaction test is a laboratory method of experimentally determining the optimal moisture content at which a given soil type will become most dense and achieve its maximum dry density. The term Proctor is in honor of R. R. Proctor, who in 1933 showed that the dry density of a soil for a given compactive effort depends on the amount of water the soil contains during soil compaction.

signal warrantsA warrant is a set of criteria used to define the relative need for, and. appropriateness of, a particular traffic control device (e.g., STOP or YIELD sign, traffic signal, etc.). Warrants are usually expressed in the form of numerical. requirements such as the volume of vehicular or pedestrian traffic.
