      (1)   Portland cement concrete pavement, eight inches thick laid on a subgrade four-inch sand base or a subgrade with four-inch thickness of ¾-inch crusher run rock base and the subgrades compacted to 95% modified proctor density.  Moisture content of subgrade to be slightly above optimum.  Concrete to be a minimum of 4,000 p.s.i. at 28 days, six sack mix 5% to 7% entrained air with a slump of six inches.  A six-inch concrete curb shall be cast integrally with the pavement.  Expansion joints to be constructed at fixed structures or noncontinuous intersections only.  Transverse contraction joints shall be provided at not to exceed 25-foot intervals and longitudinal joints spaced at intervals not to exceed 16 feet;
      (2)   Asphaltic concrete (hot mix - hot laid) pavement 6½ inches thick (two inches layer type A and two inches layer type B or C) on a six-inch stabilized aggregate base course (Class 1 or 2) with six-inch subgrade compacted to 95% modified proctor density.  Types A, B and C refer to mixtures of materials as set forth in Section 411 of Standard Specifications for Highway Construction of the Oklahoma State Highway Commission.  Class 1 or 2 refers to mixtures of materials and construction procedures as set forth in Section 303 of the Oklahoma State Transportation Commission Standard Specifications.  The preceding street type shall have a six-inch portland cement concrete curb and 18-inch concrete gutter.  Concrete for curb and gutter shall meet the minimum specifications as outlined in subdivision (1) of this division (B) for streets;
      (3)   Subgrade of streets shall be a base of four inches thick of ¾-inch crusher run rock base or sand base; and
      (4)   When six-inch concrete curb is not cast integrally with the pavement, steel reinforcing bars shall be placed as follows:  Three Dowell bars shall be placed vertically at four-foot centers.
   (C)   No street or roadway shall be less than 27 feet from back of curb to back of curb;
   (D)   Any street or roadway which the City Council or other regulatory body determines shall serve as a major street shall be 37 feet from back of curb to back of curb;
   (E)   During construction of streets, the city building inspector or city engineer may come upon any job site and inspect to determine if the specifications are being met, and in connection with the inspection may take samples of the material being used and submit the material to a laboratory for testing.  The developer or person, firm or corporation causing the street to be built shall pay the costs of testing the material;
