Improper maintenance following conclusion of project.

A contractor shall bear no civil liability to a claimant for personal injury, property damage, or death which occurs subsequent to the conclusion of the project where the proximate cause of the personal injury, property damage, or death is occasioned by a failure of the awarding authority to properly maintain the roadway or any of its features, including shoulders, unless either:

(1) A contractor contracts in whole or in part with the awarding authority to maintain the roadway, or any of its features, including shoulders, or project in question.

(2) The contractor undertakes, independent of a contract, to maintain a roadway or any of its features, including shoulders.
