Sec. 16. (a) After complete inspection has been made and it is determined that the work has
been done according to plans and specifications, the commissioner of the department
may approve and accept completed work in sections of not less than one (1) mile unless
otherwise permitted by the contract documents.
(b) When a section of the work has been completed and accepted, the contractor is
as fully relieved of all liability for the maintenance, reconstruction, or restoration
of the section of the work completed and accepted, or a part of the work, as the contractor
would be if the entire contract were finally completed and accepted.
(c) If the contract consists of two (2) or more projects as defined by the department,
the commissioner may approve and accept the work of a completed project, and the contractor
is relieved of all liability for maintenance, reconstruction, or restoration of the
project, or a part of the project, as the contractor would be if the entire contract
were finally completed and accepted.
